I just downloaded todays bits: 2002022203. When I try to send a signed message I get an alert dialog while we are assembling the message saying: "Sending of message failed. Please verify that your account settings are correct." I can send encrypted messages just fine. The problem is only with signed messages. I think this bug has two issues we should look at: 1) figure out why signed messages aren't working 2) figure out a way to have a security specific warning here instead of the generic check your account settings.
I wonder if we should nominate this for .9.9 unless I'm the only one whose having trouble...

It worked fine for me using 2002022203 build on WinNT.
Trying to test that with my own build (a couple of days old), it worked. I fetched today's sources and made a depend build. On first attempt, I saw your problem. On second attempt I crashed. After a full clobber rebuild, everything worked. Either this is meanwhile fixed, or the build you used was a broken depend build. Ian Mcgreer told me, he believes NSS is not doing depend builds correctly. Scott, are you still seeing the problem?
Using a release build from: 2002022503 (yesterday), I still see this problem. Encrypted is working fine still. Just signed messages. Very strange. They are both using the same cert.
That could be a problem local to your certificate database. Maybe the crypto engine is refusing to use your cert for signing. You could try to use certificate manager and look at the details of your own cert, whether it is listed as verified/valid etc. for both signing and encrypting. Obviously the status feedback to the user on crypto failure is not good enough yet. See also bug 121287 for another example of this.
I think this bug might be a duplicate for the one I just sent in, 129936. Sorry about that.
This must be fixed. kai.

re-opening. there is no patch attached to this bug. Why do you think it's fixed? Using 2002030908, I still have the same problem I described before. Encrypted works great, signing is still failing. Both use the same cert. I used this cert before to send signed messages.

John just came by my cube to help me figure out what's going on. Some how my cert manager lost the trusted state for GTE Corporation. This caused my cert to no longer be verified. Putting the trusts back on this cert fixed the problem. This is the same profile I've used since netscape 6.0 so I'm not sure how it lost the trust information, but I won't complain. Thanks John!
