I am attempting to get TLS with Postfix working and I have run into a 
problem and nothing I have tried seems to resolve the problem. 

When a TLS connection is started, I see the following in /var/log/maillog

Jun  3 17:38:13 mo-bak-s1 postfix/smtp[41281]: certificate verification 
failed for[WW.XX.YY.ZZ]:25: untrusted issuer 
/C=US/O=Equifax/OU=Equifax Secure Certificate Authority 

I have downloaded the Equifax Secure Certificate Authority.cer, converted 
it to PEM format.  Then, I added the certificate to my certfile and 
restarted Postfix.  I had the same result. 

My guess is that I am doing something wrong importing the Equifax 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Have a nice weekend.

Thanks for your help.
