Set up S/MIME-protected messaging
You must store a certificate on your device to send digitally signed or encrypted email messages using S/MIME-protected messaging. You can store a certificate by importing it from an email message or a media card.
If you have a work email account that is supported by an EMM solution or a personal
Microsoft Exchange ActiveSyncaccount and you import a certificate, the certificate is imported into the profile space associated with your account. Certificates imported to the work profile are only available for your work email account, and certificates imported to the personal profile are only available for your personal email account.
Your device supports certificates in the following file formats and file name extensions:
- DER (.der, .cer)
- PEM (.pem, .cer)
- PFX (.pfx, .p12)
