S/MIME Certificate retrieval

Is there a way of configuring BES10 for certificate retrieval?  I have my corporate certificate on my Z10 and I have the capability of composing an S/MIME ecrypted/signed message but I have no certificate for the intended recipient.

I have previously configured BES 5 to do the lookup via LDAP for recipients certificates via the MDS Connection Service, but I can't seem to find anything similar for BES10.

I'd like to think that I don't need to import the certificates for everybody in my organisation that I might ever want to send an encrypted message to.

Any help gratefully received

Re: S/MIME Certificate retrieval

Hello dibby5,


We currently do not have a solution in place that matches the previous solution for BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5. Currently signing will work as long as it is published to the global address list (GAL) but at this time encryption will not.


Let us know if you have any other questions.

having the same issue, I was told by Blackberry that the LDAP Certificate feature will return to Blackberry in 10.2 Device Software.
