javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

tip

If you're using wiremock, configure your code to accept wiremock self-signed certificate or create a keystore and certificate that are trusted by your HTTP client and configure wiremock to use that

tip

Set the 'mail.smtp.ssl.trust' system property to an smtp host, like 'smtp.gmail.com'.
