Transfering A Notes Certificate

An Important Lotus Notes Certificate was installed  by importing it on a Lotus Notes Client on a certain PC . However, this PC is going to be replaced with a new one and the Lotus Notes Clinet was configured on the new PC but still I am not able to transfer the Lotus Notes Certificate to the new PC .
In Fact, I have accessed the following :

1-File
2-Security
3-user Security
4-Type the Password
5-Your Identity
6-Your Certificate
7-Your Notes Certificate

So, what else can be done to export it and then copy it to the new server

OK, never know what version people are dealing with, so I took one example and hoped it might be at least 'close enough' while waiting for version info.

OK now that we have the version...

Documentation talks about "Export Certificate" however, in the screenshot, you don't have that.  Given the options I would suggest selecting "Export Notes ID (Safe Copy)".  For most files this type of file should save as a .pfx, .p12, .pkcs12, or .pem file, however for notes if it is saving it is part of your ID then I would imagine it to be part of your .id file.

The email option idea above just includes the public key, which isn't the main part you need, which would be the private key... unless there's something I'm missing.  Once it is exported you can certainly email it (might need to zip it so it doesn't get yanked from email attachment filter).

I am so sorry Paranormastic there was a misunderstanding from my side ,,, what I meant and what I was trying to do is to export the certificate of the " Notes Certificate " not the " Internet Certifcate" . However, I am working on it now ....
