[Djigzo users] Outlook pfx import

Hi, Martijn,

No, it continues to fail.

When I create a cert for the user, I enter a password into the password bix, check the
box to send by email, but don't check the box for SMS (we won't be using that).  The
user receives the email with the pfx, double-clicks it to start the import procedure,
gets to the part where she is asked to provide the password, enters the password, but it
fails.

This just dawned on me - I'll have the user save the pfx to her desktop first, then try
to import it.  I've found that trying to work with files while they're still attached to
an email causes problems.  I'll have her try it out on Monday morning (GMT -5), and
report back.  If that works, then my bad, and I'll be completely embarrassed at wasting
your time :-) .  But, hey, it'll be progress!

Best,

Dimitri
