Hi, John.  I sure did.  Looks like the email is legit.  Lots of talk about it on the ezproxy listserv today, here's the archive:

In short from those who have installed the new cert, there are no problems with IE but Firefox, Safari and Chrome are experiencing certificate warnings.  HTH

Subject: [CODE4LIB] ipsCA Certs

Out of curiosity, did anyone else using ipsCA certs receive notification 
that due to the coming expiration of their root CA (December 29,2009), 
they would need a reissued cert under a new root CA?

I am uncertain as to how this new Root CA will become a part of the 
browsers trusted roots without some type of user action including a 
software upgrade, but the following library website instructions lead me 
to believe that this is not going to be smooth.

We are just about to go live with EZProxy in January with an ipsCA cert 
issued a few months ago, and I am not about to do that if I have serious 
browser support issue.
