Describe how to use client certificates for authentication
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3 From what I see, this is only possible in firefox for the web, but apparently not yet for smtp/pop/imap. If so, describe the needed steps to get there from an implementation roadmap point of view. see also: Bug 28200 and Bug 286581 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
some people are already attempting to use this feature (still uncertain that the parts already existing in the library shared with firefox are already usable for thunderbird) Bug 288195 and Bug 257182
hopefully more than the mail servers mentioned in the referenced bugs will soon support this (e.g. Apache James http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-370)

Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we are asking for your help in focussing our efforts.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter.

My understanding is that this is more some documentation needed. Moving to Help documentation. Ralf anything you would point at while reading the Help wiki ?
