Default How to Use Thawte Certificate?

Please Login to Remove!

I recently started getting a lot of "signed" email so I got my own certificate (free) at:

http://www.thawte.com/secure-email/p...tes/index.html

It's really neat but now I'm getting ENCRYPTED emails and can't read them on my BB. I know BB does a lot of security stuff how do I get my cert on to my BB?

Hmmm... not sure if this is answer:

What Thawte Root CA Certificates are embedded in the BlackBerry by default
Solution ID: vs35787
Answer:
The BlackBerry only has the Thawte Server CA embedded in it's Certificates store by default.

To enable all Thawte Root CA Certificates on your BlackBerry do the following:

1. Connect your BlackBerry to a PC with

2. On the PC, click on Start>Programs> Blackberry>desktop manager

3. Once the Desktop Manager is open, click on certificate sync

4. You will be requested to enter your keystore password

5. Select the tab> Root CA Certificates

6. This will bring up all the certificates on your PC, on left tick all the Thawte Root CA Certificates

7. Once you have selected all the Thawte Root CA Certificates, click on synchronize and exit and this will add all the new Root CA Certificates you selected to your BlackBerry.

You'll need S/MIME support on your BB and BES. I'm not aware of a BB-only solution for S/MIME emails (receiving and sending). -Pk

Does anyone have more information on this? Is it really true that we have the right certs on the device, yet the email program on the BB can't use them?
