Hi! I just obtained a brand new free email certificate from Comodo, but I can't make Mail see that!
Before Lion I used certificates, but I don't remember how I got Mail to see them.
I tried double clicking on the file, and it installs it correctly under "login / All items", but Mail doesn't seem to be affected. I read on the web that the certificate should be placed under "login / My Certificates", but copy/paste doesn't work!
Is anyone using Comodo or similar certificates with Lion 10.7.2 and Mail.app ?
There are three steps to using the certificate:
If you've used certificates previously, everything else remains the same in the Mail app.
I can't seem to get this to work either.
I downloaded an email certificate from Comodo. It saved as a .p7s file, which I double-clicked to install into keychain.
In keychain, I have an apple certificate with a private key for my apple ID, which is the same gmail address as the address I used for the comodo certificate.
However, there appear to be two separate certificates from comodo: one named for my gmail address, and one named "COMODO Client Authentication and Secure Email CA". These show up under "Certificates" but not under "My Certificates"...
When I launch Mail and check for TLS certificates in account preferences, I only see the apple ID one listed, not any of the ones from comodo...
Any idea what's going on here?
There is no place to "see" or "select" a s/MIME certificate in Mail. You can only select TLS certificate which has nothing to do with s/MIME.
for s/MIME the selection is automatic, when Mail finds a certificate that matches the email address that you defined in your Mail account settings then it offers you the possibility to Sign the message when writing a new mail from this mail address, and if you have the Cert of the recipient the encrypt icon is enabled.
This is what we follow at my firm. There are never any issues....
