I do not use encrypted E-mail, so I have no first hand knowledge. However, I did locate this article that may be of help:

When you receive a message that has been signed using a personal certificate, a security header marked “Signed” with a checkmark appears. You can click the checkmark icon to view the certificate details. If the message was altered after it was signed, Mail displays a warning that it’s unable to verify the message signature.
So, there's no checkmark, but there is an attachment "smime.p7m". The size of the attachment seems sufficient to suggest that the attachment is the award certificate I am looking for - any ideas for how to process that kind of attachment?

Double-clicking should cause Keychain access to ask if you want to import it.
You also need to import your certificates from your CAC into Keychain Access (drag them into your login keychain), however it may work with just the card inserted.

When I double click on the smime.p7m attachment, Keychain Access opens, but that's all. I am not sure what to do after that.
It appears that my certificates are already in the 'login' part of Keychain Access. I inserted the card and tried to drag the 3 certificates and the 3 keys into the 'login' part, and it says that they are already there.
Do you have any other suggestions?

Do you find the sender's certificate in your keychain?
Generally, the person you want to share encrypted emails with will send you a signed message. Then, that person's certificate will be stored in your keychain based on the email address. Then, when you get an encrypted email from them, you should be able to decrypt it.
With all the wickets the emails have gone through to get where they are, I'm not sure what is going to happen.

I have the exact same problem.
- Encrypted emials converted from .pst using PST Converter Pro
- Have CAC certificates loaded
- can only see a smime.p7m attachment
Hoping you found an answer!
