1. Use a cert from a CA that is included in the MS Certificate Store
2. Add your cert to the store

Using self-signed certs is evil, get one from a CA, if you don't want to 
pay, you can use StartCom ( www.startssl.com ) which is included with 
every browser EXCEPT IE, and add it to your machines certificate store 
to avoid the warning with OE or other MS products.  However, if you use 
Thunderbird the StartCom root cert is already included.
