GMS 2 and S/MIME?

Hello,

I've activated S/MIME on my iPhone with iOS 8.1.2 and it's not working. When using S/MIME with Thunderbird that uses SMTP/IMAP against GW it works fine.

Is there some special configuration that needs to be performed on the GMS server for S/MIME to work?

Thanks

Re: GMS 2 and S/MIME?

GMS is nothing to do with S/MIME. GMS is Activesync.
Your Thunderbird configuration must be talking directly to either your PO or GWIA, try configuring your S/MIME setup to talk to the PO/GWIA directly instead of via the GMS server on your phone.

Mark.

Hello
I was able to find information that S/MIME is not supported with GMS. After changing my iOS mail configuration so it uses IMAP/SMTP instead of ActiveSync S/MIME works fine.

What information did you find that says GMS doesn't have the support?
ActiveSync itself supports S/MIME as does the GroupWise client unless it
has been actively dissabled. S/MIME is about payload encryption and
signing that is independant of any transport as per
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3851.txt

... S/MIME is not restricted to mail; it can be used with any
transport mechanism that transports MIME data, such as HTTP. As
such, S/MIME takes advantage of the object-based features of MIME and
allows secure messages to be exchanged in mixed-transport systems.

Can you do S/MIME from your Windows GroupWise client? I can see that if
it is turned off that GMS might honor that.
How are your S/MIME over ActiveSync to GMS not working?

Hello
I can't open email sent from iOS if S/MIME is used and I use ActiveSync. If
I switch to SMTP/IMAP then it works fine.


This is quite old:

http://www.novell.com/documentation/datasync_connectors1/mobilityconnect1_readme/data/mobilityconnect1_readme.html#br7w1q8

4.10S/MIME Not Supported

S/MIME is not currently supported by the Mobility Connector. You can open
encrypted messages in GroupWise, but not on your mobile device.



Same info on this page from 2012:

https://www.novell.com/documentation/datasync_connectors1/mobilityconnect12_readme_upd4/data/mobilityconnect12_readme_upd4.html#br7w1q8

So my guess it's the same in the latest GMS version.

Confirmation, yes that is the case, though it is somewhere on the road
map, but with no target date I can find.
Likely worth your while to do an enhancement request to help prod them
along, show there is the demand.
