Exchange 2003, Outlook 2003
User tries to open an email that is digitally signed and gets this error.
"Can't open this item.  Your digital ID name can not be found by the underlying security system."
I found another post that suggested unchecking an item under the security tab of outlook but that didn't do it.

Sorry, sometimes the answers still apply to newer versions.  I see no other articles or posts with an answer on my searches.

I found the issue.  There was a file extension attached to that email that was required to view the digital signature.   Once I allowed that through the Watchguard firewall, it worked.
