S/MIME Tips and Tricks
SMIME & GMail
The GMail web interface does not do S/MIME but one can access GMail via POP and IMAP
with a client that can do S/MIME. However, my (D.O.) experience with IMAP and GMail is that
the performance is vveeerrryyy slow (for my inbox) so I make a GMail filter to forward
S/MIME signed messages to another account where IMAP performance is tollerable, either
a GMail account with few messages or a local server, and then use Thunderbird for S/MIME
in the usual way.
The trick in this is to set up the GMail filter that seems catches S/MIME messages and
forwards them. This filter consists of
- Has attachment
- Has the words "smime.p7s"
- Forward to "other account" and "Keep copy in my main inbox"
