Cannot import certificate from

Mailtraq Version:


I also encountered the access violations in Certificate Manager (see viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2116), so I thought I clear all certificates from Mailtraq and start from scratch.

Before I had certificates from StartSSL which worked fine, but they are expired now. Today I bought one from (a Comodo/PositiveSSL reseller).

What I did:
1. Created a CSR in Mailtraq Certificate Manager (RSA/SHA1/2048 bits)
2. Went to and bought a certificate using the previously created CSR
3. Downloaded the certificate from (Format: Base64, xxx.crt)
4. Went into Certificate Manager -> Import -> Pending Certificate Request -> Paste Certificate Text -> leaving blank Passphrase -> OK
5. Got error message "Warning. Invalid Certificate, Certificate format not supported or Password incorrect"

The certificate I received from the reseller look fine so far. To me it seems I am missing a step somewhere before to create the password? Could someone please explain to me what the problem is?

Thank you.

Hello Bob,

Did you make headway on this issue. I'm having the same sort of problem but, even with the error the certificate imported. However; The intermediate certificate fails... I got my positiveSSl's (as a bundle...) first through a reseller and the second one directly from Comodo. Same problem in both cases with a fresh start in between the two efforts.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
