[Djigzo users] Encryption and Gmail

When a message is encrypted with S/MIME the complete message (including 
all attachments) is converted to an attachment with name smime.p7m. You 
need a S/MIME capable email client to read the message. There is a GMail 
add-on available which can be used with Firefox

You need to import the pfx into Firefox. See 
http://www.djigzo.com/help/import_pfx_gmail.html for instructions on how 
to use the GMail S/MIME add-on with Firefox.

If you open the email from GMail with Outlook or any other S/MIME 
capable client the message will be automatically decrypted.

Kind regards,
