CA on iPhone

I have several users (including me) that carry an iPhone that receives emails from our exchange 2007 server.  I recently installed a CA on one of our servers and issued certs to all client PCs.  Now encryption, etc... are working fine on the computers but we cannot read the encrypted emails on our iPhones.  Is there a wat to share this cert with the iPhone so we can read these emails on the phone?

You could email it to the phone and install it manually, alternatively if you are using iPhone Enterprise you import it that way.

It won't matter if you install the certificate on the iPhone. iOS 4 does not support S/MIME so it simply will not work. However, it was rumored that iOS 5 will support S/MIME. That seems to be confirmed in the beta. See here: http://securitymusings.com/article/2808/using-smime-on-ios-5-beta  If you are willing to install iOS 5 Beta you should be able to get it to work. Otherwise, it shouldn't be long before iOS 5 will be released. The rumors all seem to say early October.

amatson78,

Although I appreciate the link and it looks good, I don't think this is what I am looking for.  This is a 3rd party app that will allow encrypted emails on an iPhone.  I'm looking to integrate the already published cert (that we use in Outlook) so that we can also read it on the phone.  This way, when I send an encrypted email to someone, they can read it in Outlook or on their iPhone.  I may be wrong, but it doesn't appear that the link above will do this.
