  How to Set Up Encrypted Mail on Mac OS X
Subject:   Moving Certs From Windows To Mac

I have a cert on my Windows machine, that I want to move over to my Mac. When I exported the cert, and then imported it in Keychain Access, I got my cert and my private key, but no public key. Apparently Mail won't let me sign things without a public key to go with the private key and the cert.

a) is there some way to extract the public key from the cert and add it to my keychain?

b) is there some way I can export my public key directly on the windows side and import it?

c) am I completely off base here?

Also, how does one use the "export" command in the file menu of keychain access to move keys/certs from one Mac to another?

    It actually appears that it may be due to a difference between my Verisign Cert and my Thawte cert. My Thawte cert works fine, my Verisign Cert doesn't. I've checked the case sensitivity issue. Is there a certain extension to the cert that Mail requires for it to function?
