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:


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 ( to an alternate non-signed email account (, with the message body "asdf."
2. In my yahoo account, I redirected this email to a 3rd alternate non-signed email account (, 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

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.
