mail error is breaking sanity test reporting

A mail error is breaking many things, including the daily reports and sanity test failures. This problem is only on production, not on dev.

The error is:

could not open Mail::Sender.  from='FreshPorts Sanity Daemon <>' 
to='' subject='FreshPorts sanity checking' errorcode='-24' errormsg='IO::Socket::SSL-
>start_SSL failed: SSL connect attempt failed with unknown error error:14090086:SSL 
routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed'

I have yet to track down the cause of this problem, but I suspect it may be related to recent package upgrades.


This patch may be the solution.

PerlMonks mentioned the problem and referenced a work-around. I installed www/p5-Mozilla-CA and patched the code. Preliminary tests are good. Now just waiting for the production runs to take over.
