Encrypted Email

Loading Certificates for use by Mozilla Communicator, Firefox, and Thunderbird

The Mozilla web browsers contain a certificate database that stores all certificates used by the browsers and Mozilla email applications. In order to use one of the email programs to send encrypted email, you must have a public X.509 certificate of the email recipient stored in your mailer's certificate database.

To load the email recipient's certificate(s) into Mozilla, enter the complete email address of the recipient in the Email Address field on the Sending Encrypted Email to Boeing web form. Then select Mozilla Communicator, Firefox, or Thunderbird as your download option and press the Get Certificate(s) button. If any certificates are found for the specified email address, they will be automatically loaded into your browser's certificate database and a message will be displayed telling you how many certificates were loaded.
You can view all the user certificates being stored in your Mozilla browser by following:
Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Certificates -> Manage Certificates -> Other People'

You can view all the user certificates being stored in Thunderbird by following:
Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Certificates -> Manage Certificates -> Other People's
