Protect email with digital certificates
Authored by: thelamecamel on Jun 23, '06 08:53:38AM

How amusing - I was trying to do this just a few hours ago, before I saw this hint. I couldn't get the encryption buttons in Mail to appear, using self-signed certificates (created with OS X's Certificate Assistant), even though I could get the ticked stamps appearing next to an email address using a self-signed certificate. Is there a way for Mail to accept self-signed certificates, or do I really need to give lots of personal data to Thawte to get a certificate? Is there a non-invasive free option? It doesn't matter if the people I'm conversing with need to check fingerprints manually.
