I have been asked to look into secure internet mail for our company and in
doing so I came across the S/MIME configuration in Outlook 2000 and Outlook
98. This looks like the solution I need. It appears that you can have a
certificate or keys to encrypt mail across the internet.
I have set up certificate server on a domain controller and Key manager on
the e-mail server. I created a Digital ID for a client and can send
encrypted mail within the organisation. The certificates for internal mail
have the following settings :-
Ensure e-mail came from sender
Protect e-mail from tampering
Ensure the content of e-mail cannot be viewed by others
When I attempt to configure the client to send S/MIME I don't appear to be
able to select a certificate.
Is there any info on setting up S/MIME for exchange with your own
certificate system ? Have you set it up ?
Thanks for any comments.
