using NNTPS (nnrp with ssl) with windows mail / thunderbird on windows vista

i have working nnrpd with SSL configuration. I am using my custom generated
SSL certificate signed with my own Certification Authority. Each time i am
accessing news in Windows Mail client i am getting message , that
certificate is not trusted and cannot be verified.
I want to get rid off this message by importing my custom CA (or probably
custom certificate) into windows certification storage and make it trusted
so i will not get this message again.

So far, i have converted my cacert.pem to der format using :
openssl x509 -inform PEM -outform DER -in cacert.pem -out cacert.der

Then, i have converted my nnrpd certificate to pk12 format using:
openssl pkcs12 -export -clcerts -in nnrpd.cert.pem -inkey nnrpd.key.pem -out

Then i have by clicking on cacert.der and following tutorial installed CA
certificate into Windows Vista. In second step by clicking on clcert.p12 i
have installed client certificate.
But so far, it is not working and i am allways getting message about not
trusted certificate.

Can someone help me please, or point me to solution?

Thanks in advance!
