Disable Stale Certificate Status Checks IT policy rule


This rule specifies whether a BlackBerry® device displays warnings and indicators if the user receives an email message that includes a certificate with a stale status.

Default value

The default value is No.


If you change this rule to Yes, a BlackBerry device does not display warnings and indicators about stale certificate status. Consider changing this rule to Yes if your organization uses a PKI that does not update the status of certificates.


If you change this rule to Yes, a BlackBerry device ignores the Certificate Status Maximum Expiry Time IT policy rule and the status of certificates on the BlackBerry device never expires.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Application Suite version 1.0
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 SP6
