Using .Mac as certificate provider for secure mail

Nice hint at MacOSXHints about using the certificate that encrypts iChat sessions in Tiger to authenticate and encrypt mail as well. Timely for me; I haven’t gotten around to renewing my existing certificate that I set up with Thawte, and I think it expires soon (if it hasn’t already).

See my earlier post about issues with signed mail and a link to the process for getting a personal certificate for digital signature use from Thawte.
