Conclusion to Implementing an Exchange 2003-Based Message Security System in a Test Environment


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-19

By following the steps in this section, you will have a fully functioning test environment that enables you to see how an S/MIME system built on Exchange 2003 operates. This section also shows you how to perform some basic steps to understand S/MIME functionality:

  • How certificates are issued.

  • How S/MIME clients use those certificates.

  • How to send and receive e-mail messages that have been signed and encrypted.

After you complete the tasks described in this section, use your lab to learn more about the different parts of an S/MIME system through continued experimentation. For example, you can use your lab to learn how certificate revocation and key recovery works in Certificate Services. For more information about these topics, see Certificate Services Help.
