10.3: S/MIME encryption and Mail.app
Authored by: jrdavidson on Jan 26, '04 06:46:19PM

No - X509Anchors is the right place - I had to do it as root, though, to be able to write into that keychain. I put the root CA cert, and my public key there, just for completeness sake.

Also - make sure your Full Name in your mail.app Account preferences matches exactly the Common Name in your public key cert.

Proof of the pudding is starting mail.app from scratch, clicking on New (message) and seeing the signing button show up. The encrypt button will only show after you enter a destination address for which you already have accepted a signed email - thus importing that person's public key into your personal keychain.

hope this helps.
