Hi Benny,

I went to that link, downloaded the ISRG Root X1 cert and added it and 
changed the trust setting.  Rebooted my Mac but the old expired DST Root 
CA X3 cert was still in the System Roots certificates (along with a 
bunch of other even older expired certs).  Keychain Access wouldn't let 
me get rid of it/them.

I had to resort to

sudo security delete-certificate -c "DST Root CA X3" 

which got rid of it (and I used it to remove all the other expired 
certs), but after restarting MailMate I am still getting the "SSL 
certificate problem: certificate has expired" error from the Software 
Update check.

Not sure why.  Maybe I need to do yet another reboot?
