Hi Ted,

GnuTLS uses the file ~/.gnutls/known_hosts.  I did not look into
this, but why do want to duplicate that functionality in Emacs?

Done: http://debbugs.gnu.org/17061

JL> P.P.S. I’m using imap.el, which knows of various ways to

v5.13 and Ma Gnus v0.10.  I’m using imap among `mail-sources' via
imap.el, not nnimap.  (The latter is on my todo list.)

Best wishes
