Shruthi Rentala
Shruthi Rentala used Ask the Experts™
1. I have an msg file which is digitally signed and not encrypted, I could see 2 attachments from the email one is .P7M and the other one is .P7S. Can this happen ? I mean it should be either a .P7m file or a .P7s file right?
2. Can .P7s file support encryption and digital sign both?
3. Can you explain in detail the difference between .P7m and .p7S files?
