after my last posting about domain certificates, I

Djigzo accepted the email address *(a)abc.com and I was able to configure this
When I now download the certificate for *(a)abc.com and import it on another Djigzo system,
will this system really use this certificate for every email to addresses that end on
And if it does, where do I get an official wildcard certificate? I have checked the
website of Verisign and Thawte, but couldn't find an offer for wildcard email
certificates, only for single email addresses.
Even though it will accept a certificate with a wildcard email address,
Djigzo will not automatically use it for the domain. There is afaik no
official standard for wildcard email certificates. If you want to
encrypt all email sent to a specific domain, you need to add a domain
and select that certificate as an encryption certificate for that
domain. This works for any kind of certificate, wildcard or no wildcard
certificate. The administrator need to decide whether a certificate is
valid for a domain or not.
