that's not the issue...the certificate is signed by Akamai which is not
a certificate issuer that is trusted by default. This message is what
you would see from any certificate presented that is not signed by a
trusted issuer (i.e. self-signed certificates).

rather than pose solutions that illustrate how little you understand the
problem, you would do better to understand the problem.

The simple solution is of course the download the certificate, examine
it and decide whether or not you wish to trust the certificate.
