If they say they are, point out that it is very bad practice, then make
a risk assessment as how likely it is that a hacker may have cracked the
encryption by now.
If they say that their certificate is valid, assume you are talking to
an impostor, and do not use the service to send anything that you
wouldn't want your local organised crime boss, to know, and do not
receive any files unless you have a deep understanding of how files can
be used to plant malware and you are certain that that is not possible
in your case.
Similarly, if they say they know it is expired but your risk assessment
determines it is too likely to have been compromised. Or preferably wait
until they have fixed it, at their end, before continuing to use the
Do not ask anyone you do not know and trust to make the risk assessment
