Does anyone know if you can sign emails sent from the iPhone with a digital cert? I have my certs installed but I see no way of associating them with an email account.

Additionally, when I receive emails that have been signed there is no indication on the iPhone that it has been signed.

I know the iPhone is not at the Enterprise level yet, but I was hoping by OS 4.0 we'd have this available.

    Didn't find a way, too.

    Safari seems to work with imported certificates, but not mail.

    And, even worse, there's no way to encrypt mail on the iphone but a private key solution named iCrypt, which is incompatible no every other mail program.

    That's a shame for Apple. for OSX works fine with certs.

    Yeah - this is kind of a joke... But really a bad one...

    I've no explanation why Apple does not want to push and implement S/MIME mail encryption. It is possible with Android - so why not with iOS?!?

    Does s.o have any news about a foreseeable implementation of S/MIME in the Mail app? Or anyone having a third-party solution?

    I came here hoping for some GOOD news. Seriously? No PGP support?

    That *****, it's a new requirement that all company mail be pgp encrypted....guess I'm switching handsets.

    Apple, come ON. This is just silly.

    actually there was no given Way from apple to give a digital Cert to a mail you'll send. I hope that they will implement a PGP system into the iPhone mail.
    or all our busines phones have to be replaced, because of this missing PGP support.

    Apple, you really need to fix this! Our company is starting to require that all outbound emails are digitally signed, and not being able to send from our mobile devices is a bit of show stopper!
