Eudora 7 - SSL Certificate Management problem

I am new to Linux so please excuse me if I use the wrong terminlogy.

I have recently installed Eudora using POL under Linux Mint 18.2 32-bit.

I have been running Eudora as my email client on various versions of Windows for many, many years.  The only challenge I have with Eudora is that it no longer automatically manages the SSL certificates which are required to allow email to be sent and received via GMail.  Fortunately Eudora provides a method to add these manually to its file of "user trusted" certificates so its no big hassle.

I can open Eudora on Linux and create an my email file with no obvious problems.  However I get the following error message when I attempt to receive email or add certificate information to the "user trusted" file.

The permissions of the file usercerts.p7b are -rw-rw-rw-

Any suggestions of what to do next would be appreciated.

Oops. The cut-n-paste of the error msg has been dropped from my post.

It reads:-

There was an error updating your usercerts.p7b

Certificate file (error 32). Any certificate changes

you made during this session will not be saved.
