Hi,

I found a Bug on your software.

I have two certificates installed on my computer:

  1. Code Signing Certificate for (exe, dll, ocx);
  2. Certificate for e-mail signature.

Certificate for code signing was issued by certum and is "open source". Certificate for e-signature was issued by Comodo and is also free.

When using ChilkatEmail for sending e-mail, with "SendSigned = 1" property, Chilkat is using my code signing certificate to sign the email. This creates a wrong signature.

Both the certificate for code signing and the certificate for email signature using the same email address. But realize that they have different purposes.

Chilkat provides many different means for specifying the exact certificate that should be used for signing or encrypting. You don't need to leave it to chance.

If, for example, Chilkat bypassed the code-signing certificate that matched the email address and continued looking, it might be that a particular user actually wanted to use the code-signing certificate. (Users do unexpected and strange things...) In that case, Chilkat would have to exhaustively search through all the certs on a system, which in some cases can be very large The better solution is to explicitly specify the certificate to be used.

How do I do this using ChilkatEmail or ChilkatMailMan? I am using vb6!

Hennyere, you've been a member since June 2014 and you're still evaluating whether or not to buy?

And a quick glance at the ChilkatEmail ActiveX documentation shows some promising methods such as SetSigningCert and SetSigningCert2. Have you tried them?

I'm trying to show your tool to a new company, but its tool is faulty.

The property "LoadByEmailAddress" in ChilkatCert returns incorrect certificate. I can see the same problem! Wrong certificate was selected

I can see ForCodeSigning = 1 and ForSecureEmail = 1, but this certificate is not to "ForSecureEmail".

Another issue:

When you use "LoadEml" function, certificate fails to validate when you try to open email on smartphone! See: https://s3-sa-east-1.amazonaws.com/e-dne-2014/Screenshot_2015-03-18-01-03-49.jpg
