Re: [iaik-jce] [IAIK-JCE] Using self-created certificate to sign messages in Outlook 2000



I have exactly the same problem as Diego, but with Outlook Express.  I
create a PKCS12 object with a self-generated certificate and the
corresponding private key and write it to a .pfx file.  But when I try to
import the .pfx file into OE, it will not allow it as a personal Digital ID,
only as an "Intermediate Certification Authority", which makes it unusable.

What do I need to do to make self-generated certificates usable as Personal
IDs in Outlook Express?
