Summary0000339: Thunderbird vs. email address in root certificate
DescriptionThe CAcert root certificate contains as an email address, therefore Thunderbird thinks that it should be used to encrypt emails to to. Unfortunatley we canĀ“t decrypt them afterwards ...
We should issue root certificates without email addresses in it in the future, or encode them differently.
