10.4: Use .Mac iChat certificates in Mail
Authored by: scott.gardner on Nov 30, '05 08:16:03PM

It's worth noting, I sent a message to Thawte on 3 separate occasions. They never responded:

Hello,

I signed up for a digital certificate a few weeks ago with you. I received and set everything up on my end, and subsequently tested a scenario to ensure the security of my email communication, as follows:

1. I sent an email from my digital-certificate signed email account (...@mac.com) to an alternate non-signed email account (...@yahoo.com), with the message body "asdf."
2. In my yahoo account, I redirected this email to a 3rd alternate non-signed email account (...@gmail.com), adding this text to the message body: jkl;
3. In my gmail account I received the redirected email with the altered message body, yet still showing signed by ...@mac.com

It appears to me that this digital signature is not accurate, because the message was altered by the recipient and then re-directed to another email. See test email chain below. I've emailed you several times regarding this issue and have not received a response.

Please advise.

Thanks,
...
