You may see an Internet Security Warning dialog box if you have not already installed an MIT CA Certificate for Safari. To prevent this security warning dialog from occurring each time you log on to Microsoft Outlook, install the MIT CA Certificate for Safari. The easiest way to instal the MIT CA Certificate is to use [CertAid 2.0].
