2. Choose your current browser as the certificate will be imported into your web browser.
3. Complete the enrollment form. Make sure that the email address you fill in is the actual address you intend to send encrypted/signed mail from. Once you obtain the certificate, the email address listed will appear as the digital signature when signing and encrypting messages.
4. After completing the enrollment form, you will be sent an email which will include a pickup ID and URL link.
5. After clicking the link sent through email, you will be prompted to accept the certificate into your web browser.
6. Once the certificate is in the browser, you can access it from Tools > Internet Options.
7. Here you can access and export any certificates which are part of the web browser.
8. Now you can select the newly imported VeriSign Class 1 Digital certificate and export.
9. Once the certificate is actually a physical file, you can then import this into your Notes ID file from File > Security > User Security.
10. Once the certificate is part of the ID file, you must send a signed message to the recipient you intend to start sending encrypted mail between.
11. Once the user receives the signed message, they will be prompted to cross certify.
12. After the user successfully cross certifies, they will send you a signed message as well and you will need to cross certify.
13. To verify the Internet certificate has been imported into your address book, you can check the contact record.
14. Lastly, you will be able to send and receive encrypted messages to and from this particular user.
