When accessing mail on SLUUG's servers for the first time using secure POP or IMAP, you should get a prompt to examine and verify the server's certificate. You need to compare the fingerprint your mail client displayed against one of the SHA1 or MD5 fingerprints below for the type of access you are using. You might optionally compare other information to verify it matches. The exact format displayed will depend on the mail client you are using.
