Thanks for posting that one. I've been looking for a webmail system that does S/MIME. I'm in the process of setting up a PKI for my current employer, a health insurance company. The government is currently drafting new legislation, referred to as HIPAA, that governs how medical information sent over the internet needs to be handled (among other things). The regulations are going to require full non-repudiation (knowing exactly who sent the message) and encryption. Currently there aren't many good solutions for doing this. You can contract with Verisign to issue your certificates or you can become your own CA. If you become your own CA you don't have many choices as to what software to run it on. That software market is getting ready to explode. If you want to play around more with PKI, check out SwissSign. They are a free, web-based PKI.

Ooops... I stand corrected. Hushmail isn't doing S/MIME, at least not externally... I guess I'm going to have to just add it to my favorite webmail system: IMP
