1) Why does a website or a mail service asks for certificates?
2) What are different types of certificates?

Can somebody give me a detailed information on this topic and how to resolve this problem if a browser constantly asking for a certificate for a website or eMail account?

    Hello a certificate is an electronic document that uses a digital signature which pairs a public key with an identity. Certificates are used to make sure that a key belongs to a specific user/organization. For more info, visit the following link:

    1: SECURITY CERTIFICATES ARE DEPENDED ON TIME ZONES

    2: SERVERS ALL AROUND THE WORLD HAVE DIFFERENT TIME ZONES

    In IE, go Tools, Internet OPtions, Advanced. Scroll down to security and uncheck "check for pub cert revocation", and uncheck "chk for server cert revocation."
    In Firefox, its Tools, Options, Advanced, Encryption, Validation and uncheck "use online Cert........"
    PLEASE turn them back on when finished
