I use Enourage 2008 for Mac OS X 10.5.8

When I try to send a Mail with Entourage it shows following error.

ERROR

Entourage cannot find the server. Verify the server information is entered correctly in the Account Settings, and that your DNS settings in the Network pane of System Preferences are correct.

EXPLANATION

Mail could not be sent.

Account name: "mymailaccount"

Error: -3176

When I go to console and look what my mac has been doing I see a bunch of theses lines

2010/01/09 11:06:21 PM /Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Microsoft Entourage.app/Contents/MacOS/Microsoft Entourage[1708] Warning: accessing obsolete X509Anchors.

I just know that Entourage is accessing the false file path to the certificates and gives this error.

What can I do to resolve this problem?

So here is the Answer finally:

Entourage 2004 doesn't manage to find the certificates on Mac OS X 10.5 because they have been made obsolete.

As it turns out, the X509Anchors file, as of Leopard, has been made obsolete - but not entirely... It can (and is) still read from, but cannot be written to - at least not with any GUI interface like Apple Keychain or Microsoft Cert Manager.

As Entourage looks at this X509Anchors file for the Root Certificate and not in the new SystemCA/RootCertificates.keychain files, of course it's not going to find it! This also explains why people that upgraded rather than fresh
