Secure E-mail using Windows Live Mail

This project shows you how to do S/MIME based secure e-mail using a free Microsoft e-mail client (Windows Live Mail). The same concepts work in other e-mail clients such as Outlook and Thunderbird.

S/MIME requires a client digital certificate for each user, which can be obtained from various online Certificate Authorities. You can also create your own with XCA.
