More questions...

Tried creating a certificate again.  This time the process died, but showed me the 'secure email settings' after this error.  I tried 'exporting' the certificate as before, but CGP reported that it could not find the file?

Logged out and back in.

The account I was testing is now saying "Secure Mail is Locked" when I go to the 'Secure Email' settings.  But when I enter the 'Secure Email' password, CGP sends back an error "Account does not have an S/MIME Certificate".

If CGP won't progress beyond this point I don't seem to be able to unset the secure email setting via webmail.  Is there (I hope) some other way to remove this setting and start process again?

I'm still not sure why CGP won't create the certificate normally as per help files.  Any ideas on this would be valuable.

I'm messing around with security certificates... wonder if anyone can help with this.

Have installed a domain level SSL certificate.  Noticed that help system says in theory you can generate user keys / certificates via webmail system once you have done this (maybe wrong - just my reading of what is said).  So try to do this...  When I get to appropriate bit of webmail and change password as requested to generate certificate, I get the error "directory record data is damaged".   But the process completes, and I can export the certificate.

When I try to import the certificate into something (Apple's OS X Keychain in this case) I get an error "CL_INVALID_FIELD_POINTER" pop up, and the import fails.

But if I then upload the certificate back to webmail I can use it to 'delete' the key.

All a bit confusing... can anyone explain what might be going on / wrong?
