Novell: GroupWise

How do I use Internet email certificates with GroupWise? by jaminjim
Posted: 4 Aug 00

First - some cautions-
You must be using GroupWise 5.5 to do this, my client version is
Be sure to register your certificate in the name (alias) that your correspondents see.  Otherwise, the cert won't decrypt properly.  You may have to experiment with several 'names' to get that right.  I first registered my preferred alias, that didn't decrypt at the other end.  Then my user id. Same result. The one that finally worked was the alias that GroupWise sends to Internet correspondents so that is the one that you should register.  If you need to experiment, you can get multiple free certs at www.thawte.com.

So here is how to get started...

Step1: GET THE CERTIFICATE: Use your browser (IE or Netscape) and get your certificate from the CA (Verisign or wherever).

Step2: EXPORT THE CERTIFICATE: Locate the certificate in your browser (IE = internet options -> certificates -> (select cert) -> export)
(Netscape = security -> certificates -> yours -> (select cert) -> export)

Pick a location on your drive to save the certificate file (I chose winnt/system32/certsrv/certControl/x86) and save the certfile there.

Step3: IMPORT THE CERT INTO GROUPWISE: Note: you must be using GroupWise 5.5 to do this, my client version is  
In GroupWise 5.5 client go to tools -> options -> my certificates ->import ->{browse to cert file you just saved} ->enter password -> click ok.
set the cert as the default.  

that should do it.
