The settings are hierarchical. You have the system settings, global
settings, wild-card domain settings (*.example.com) domain settings and
user settings. Lower levels inherit from higher levels if a setting is
not explicitly set. You can override the inherited value by unchecking
the "inherit" checkbox for the specific setting.
In your case you should set "Encrypt mode" to allow for the global
settings (which is the default) and explicitly set it to "No encryption"
ONLY for the CA sender (the email address of the CA). Doing so assures
you that the email with the pfx is not S/MIME encrypted.

Are you sure that the domain work.com (or the user me at work.com) is an
internal user. Only for users that are internal users is email
decrypted. Email to internal users is decrypted and email to external
users is encrypted.
