You already found that by yourself :)

Better ask that on a mozilla mailinglist.

I think it doesn't use Konqueror, only kio_http, the HTTP transport of
Actually KMail does very likely only use KRun, Ingo can surely tell you
more details if necessary.

How about importing those certs in KDEs certificate store?

Based on the asumption that KMail uses KRun and based on the very vague
knowledge of KRun, I guess you could register anothr protocol handler for
http (see the .protocol files in KDEDIR/share/services)
Could be that this breaks most other KDE apps, if something not compatible
to a KIO slave handles http request.
My suggestion is to try to enable kio_http to request the pages.
