10.6: Sign and encrypt emails in Mail via thawte

Hints stats "By default, thawte stores your private keys on their system".

This is incorrect. Thawte does not have access to your private keys. To understand better how X.509 and certificates work you may want to start with the following article:

P.S. Disclosure: I am Thawte WOT Notary.
