Ha ha ha ha ha.
I'm using Netscape 4.7. I tried with Netscape 6 and I figured it didn't
I receive the emails and everything but the signatures are always invalid.
Any chance you could send me some of the code you used to get this thing

Hang on, just had a thought - what _version_ of "Netscape Messenger" are you
using? Netscape 6+ aka Mozilla aka "nobody uses S/MIME, it's not important,
so we won't bother implementing it" aka *grrr* ... well, it doesn't support
S/MIME. You need to revert to a _useful_ email package, like the one with
Netscape 4.7 or Outlook (the only two mail packages that I know of that
support S/MIME in a graphical environment.)
