S/MIME Encryption Support PGP Universal Server

Created: 15 Sep 2011 • Updated: 15 Sep 2011 | 2 comments

Dear all,

I'm courious about the S/MIME support in PGP Universal Gateway. 

The system is setup as E-Mail Proxy, using the latest version 3.2.0. It works greate with PGP key encryption / decryption.

If the system fetched a SMIME certificate from mailflow, there is no problem to encrypt an outgoing message with it.

As I see correctly, there is no way to add a smime certificate (private key) for internal users to the Gateay, for using it to decrypt smime messages, which were encryptet with my public smime key.

Did I miss something o isn't it supported?

Thanks in advanced

Internal users will automatically get an S/MIME cert (overnight) if you add an organisational certificate to your server (under Keys > Organisation Keys). You can either generate a self-signed one, or generate a CSR and get it signed by an external CA.

I normally just used self-signed, because the external CA's typically charge a serious amount of money to issue a cert that is suitable for these purposes.

Hello NoLoWa,

You will get the answers in the below articles, but you need to add the certificate to the Trusted store.

S/MIME can be imported to the PGP Desktop, it will be associated with the PGP keys, check it by opening the key properties.

Even you can enroll the user using the S/MIME Certificates check the below articles :
