Alright, foremost I must apologize that I am not very advanced in dealing with these types of certificate-oriented problems. I am trying to get S/MIME working on my Apple devices, and thus far I have been successful.

I have a Comodo certificate for my account, and sending signed and encrypted messages works perfectly. However, I was wondering if, for others to send those types of messages to me, I need to share my public key.

If I do need to share my public key, how would I go about doing it? I read through this, but I am still unsure of what to do. I have the certificates in my Keychain, where do I go from there?

This question came from our site for Information security professionals.

Hi there - this is not on topic here, as it is not a security question, but a question around usage. It may be on topic on Apple SE so I'll try and migrate it there. –  Rory Alsop May 27 '14 at 15:02
