Maybe because what you did isn't in the FAQ ?
Importing the server certificate isn't enough. In fact it is generally
(98%) useless (because the certificate is already part of the SSL/TLS
handshake, so there's no need for a local copy of it).
*Unless* (2%) the server certificate is also your root (self-signed)
certificate (common only for testing certificates). This shouldn't be
your case as you were talking about a certificate from a "trusted" CA.
Now the real question(s) is/are:
How did *you* decide it was "trusted" ? or have you ?
Answer: In the FAQ ;-)
