Thread: kmail certificates

  1. #1

    Default kmail certificates

    I have a server certificate with extension .csr that I want to import into kmail. I cannot figure out how to do this.

    From tools->"Certificate Manager", I can start up Kleopatra, but I can't import the certificate because Kleopatra "cannot determine the certificate type". I can import this same certificate without problem into Firefox and Thunderbird.

    Any ideas?

    A CSR is a Certificate Signing Request, meaning it is not really much of
    anything. If you really want to have a CSR involved in the process you
    should then use it with your CA of choice (your own or, more-typically, a
    third-party and trusted CA like Thawte, Geotrust, RapidSSL, Verisign,
    etc.) and use the generated certificate with your mail application.

    Good luck.

    Instead of directly reading the certificate into kleopatra, I've directly imported the certificate from kmail. Where does this get stored? As far as I can tell, it is not stored in kleopatra. I also located a KDE bug report I reported for that months back.
    https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=192466

    Furthermore, I discovered that I can import a version of the certificate into kleopatra using gpgsm but not kleopatra directly.

    If someone can explain how certificates are stored and accessed in kmail, I would appreciate it. In the meantime I will try checking the source.
