I would love to have a feature to search for certificates for mail address in
given directories , VeriSign CA or others (they all support LDAP searches). I.e.
if there is no local stored certificate available for an email address show an
"search for certs" icon in the new mail windows.

Looks like a dupe of bug 149013

yes, looks like a dup. However, i just tested the feature against
directory.verisign.com and it is not implemented (well, bug isn't closed yet so
this is not very surprising but there seems to be no current work as well).

But my feature request might go a little beyond bug 149013: usually, you would
use your Mozilla address book and/or a companies LDAP directory to search for
email addresses. But you don't have the possibility yet to search against a
second or third LDAP directory for email addresses, and maybe only to search for
the certificate of a user which is already in your address book. 

I wouldn't use VeriSign's directory to search for email addresses in general but
would perfer my companies directory with all the employees and known partners -
but if you need to find a certificate of any other given email address VeriSign
is one good place to search for. So now there are already two LDAP directories
plus my Mozilla address book.

It might be a bit tricky to figure how to do UI for this that wasn't extremely
byzantine.  Perhaps it would be a prefs.js-only thing.
