SSL certificate importing to clients

You may import either the server's self-signed certificate or the CA certificate (see SSL/CertificateCreation).

Windows XP

Import to Trusted Root Certification Authorities store: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/sag_cmprocsimport.mspx?mfr=true

Outlook and Outlook Express uses the Windows's certificate store.

Mac OS X

Apple Mail uses the OS X's certificate store.

Thunderbird

Preferences -> Privacy -> Security -> View Certificates -> Authorities -> Import -> Trust this CA to identify email users.

Opera Mail

Preferences -> Advanced > Security > Certificates > Import certificate file.

Evolution

Preferences -> Certificates -> Authorities -> Import -> Trust this CA to identify email users.

Pine

http://www.madboa.com/geek/pine-ssl/ tells a story how to do this. Basically it seems to be:

  1. Find out your OPENSSLDIR: openssl version -d

  2. Get a hash of your certificate: openssl x509 -in cert.pem -hash -noout

  3. Copy the certificate to $OPENSSLDIR/certs/$hash.0

This probably works only for self-signed certificates.
