Certificate gets placed in other people certificate store

Hi experts,

I requested a user cert for my self from my  internal  CA and installed it on my local machine joined to the domain.  Issue is that it gets installed or placed in other people certificate store rather than personal store.

What could be the problem?

Thanks,
LVL 1

I got this resolved by myself.

Requesting the user cert via http://server/certsrv and installing didn't seem to work since the user cert is getting installed on other people store.

I followed the following steps and my user cert got installed on my personal store.  Now I am able to digitally signed my mail in outlook,

To request a certificate  
1.Open the Certificates snap-in for a user or computer.
2.In the console tree, click Certificates - Current User or Certificates (Local Computer). Select the Personal certificate store.
3.On the Action menu, point to All Tasks, and then click Request New Certificate to start the Certificate Enrollment wizard. Click Next.
4.Select the types of certificates that you want to request.
5.You can click Details to review additional information about each certificate.

If a caution symbol appears below the certificate, you might need to provide additional information before requesting that type of certificate. Click the More information is required to enroll for this certificate. Click here to configure message and provide the requested information, such as a subject name or the location of a valid signing certificate.

6.To finish, click Enroll.

Which certificate you are requesting?

Other people store Contains the certificates of those that the user normally sends enveloped messages to or receives signed messages from.

If you have user certificate with associated private key, it would go into personnel store only
