The error indicates that Qpopper (OpenSSL actually) is having problems reading the
private key. Since you are using one file to hold both the private key and the
certificate you need to be sure it's formatted correctly *and* the private key isn't
encrypted with a password (when you generated the certifiate request, you did so
without a password...).
cert.pem shold look like..
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
Version: 3 (0x2)
You may have mutiple certificate sections. The Certificate: section is only really for
looks and isn't parsed. It's the BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY section that is important, or
at least the part that is causing this error.
