Location of certs for kmail

Short question: Where are the security certificates stored for kmail (to allow 
it to "talk" to gmail)?

(I'm using kmail 1.8.2 with kde 3.4.2.)


I use gmail as my isp, and kmail as my main email client.

I am trying to set up nail to use to send some emails from the command line.  
After a lot of frustration, I'm getting close, but now I run into an error 
like, which tells me nails can't find the certificates:

[rhk at s14 bulkmail]$ Error with certificate at depth: 0
 issuer = /C=US/O=Equifax/OU=Equifax Secure Certificate Authority
 subject = /C=US/ST=California/L=Mountain View/O=Google Inc./CN=smtp.gmail.com
 err 20: unable to get local issuer certificate
Continue (y/n)? could not initiate SSL/TLS connection: error:14090086:SSL 
routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed
"/home/rhk/dead.letter" 19/499
. . . message not sent.

I'm assuming (I know) that since kmail does successfully send mail to gmail, 
that it has access to the certificates, and I'm guessing I should be able to 
link or copy them to solve the problem.
