I am attempting to change the mail settings on my new iphone 4s and when I put in my Apple ID I get the following error:


"The Certificate for this server is invalid. You might be connecting to a server that is pretending to be “server.name” which could put your confidential information at risk."


Ultimately, I can't do anything with the phone because every time I'm asked to put in my ID, I get the same message.


Any ideas?




iMac, Mac OS X (10.3.x)

    I have exactly the same problem trying to set up iCloud on my iPod Touch.


    Only in this case it says that I may be connecting to a server that is pretending to be "setup.iCloud.com".


    Note that I already have iCloud set up and working fine from my MacBook - theoretically it should be a matter of simply entering my Apple ID and password and I'm connected from the iPod touch as well!
