The above error message occurs if there is not a digital certificate available for the sender or recipient on your workstation.

Outlook cannnot send a signed or encrypted or in some instances view an S/MIME message.
As a workaround, you can use the following instructions to manage certificates for Outlook 2007 and 2010.

    Open a digitally signed message from the recipient.
    Right-click on the name in the "From:" box and choose "Add to Outlook Contacts"
    The contacts window will open next click on the "Save & Close" button in the upper-left corner.
    Verify this setting in Outlook:UW Digital ID (Win) - Outlook 2007 & 2010 - Messages Display as Encrypted when they are only Signed

takecoffee:  thanks for the fast reply.

Problem.  Internal users are part of the GAL so we can not 'open a digitally signed message from the recipient' when we can't send our cert.
(If I am reading your suggestion correctly)

Update:

Outlook 64 Bit is still not excepting certificate through IdenTrust.  

Following steps also tried:

exported cert & imported cert
tried to publish to GAL in Exchange 2010 --- Permissions stopped in Outlook 2010 and inside Exchange, Error while trying to upload cert
AD on exchange 2010 server > Published Certs > Will not allow me to upload any certs

I was able to do follow these instructions from MS  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2497165 and was able to send now on OWA but Outlook 2010 64-Bit is still stopping me.

Please close ticket as no one responded.  I had to go ahead and spend the money with Microsoft & found it to be an 64-bit problem.  I can not install the 32-bit due to other MS 64 bit products on the workstations.
