I think I hit a hard limit in the cache of previously approved certificates.

As of mIRC 7.19, my mIRC.ini only keeps track of 100 entries, from n0 to n99 in the sslcache section.

Could this limit be removed, or at least made user configurable?

mIRC places a reasonable limit on history size for most features, otherwise you would end up with an mirc.ini file that increases in size indefinitely, resulting in performance and memory issues. The sslcache size is limited to your most recent 100 SSL server connections. That does seem reasonable to me. Are you regularly connecting to more than 100 different IRC SSL servers?

Hello Khaled, thanks for your reply.

Depending on the days, I end up connected to most of top 10 major networks, and a dozen smaller ones. I try to use SSL wherever I can, but most admins can't get a perfect certificate and I end up checking and acknowledging a lot of self signed ones.

It took something like 6 months of servers being linked and unlinked for me to hit the 100 limit, so that value seems reasonable. However, I definitely would like to be able to set it myself.
