If you have an existing intermediate CA certificate with the associated
private key and the issuing root certificate (just the cert) you can
import the root (into the root store) and import the CA (using a PKCS#12
file) into the certificates store. You can then select the newly
imported intermediate as the issuing certificate for the built-in CA
(from menu, CA -> Select CA (from left hand side menu))

Alternatively you can connect CipherMail to an external CA like for
example EJBCA.

Or did I misunderstand your question?
