10.3: S/MIME encryption and

The public certificate is not what you need to encrypt the mail; what Mail needs is a private key. I have one that Thawte generated, and it shows up in Keychain Access with kind 'Private Key, RSA, 2048-bit'. The certificate merely certifies that your public key is what you say it is, and that your e-mail address is what you say it is, etc.
