smime and Pkcs12 format

Recommended Posts

I enabled the SMime support and was all excited about finding support for it. But then I saw this in the help:

"Key pairs must be imported as PEM format keys (pkcs7 format). Pkcs12 format is not supported."

Yet, IE 6 only allows me to export my keys as Pkcs12. The other option, pkcs7, is greyed out. In monkeying around with export options, I found including the private key while exporting is what seems to cause this.

Am I stuck and must wait for Pkcs12 support? Or do I really need that private key?
