TIP Your organization’s IT administrator or Exchange administrator might be able to issue
you a digital ID.
You can have more than one digital ID on your computer, and you can select which one to
use for each document or message. For example, you might have one digital ID for business
use and one for personal use.
Digitally signing messages
You can digitally sign individual messages when you compose them, or you can instruct
Outlook to digitally sign all outgoing messages.
The first time you digitally sign a message, you need to configure your security settings to
use your digital certificate. You must do this from the Trust Center dialog box.
TROUBLESHOOTING You can follow a similar process to configure security settings from
the message window, but at the time we prepared this book for publication, Outlook did
not correctly complete the process from that location, so use the Trust Center process.
