User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/12.0
Build ID: 20120420145725

Steps to reproduce:

I often e-mail with people with CAC cards, where the address on their PKI cert from their card is not the address they are sending from. I have both the address they are using and the address in ther Cert in their entry in my Address Book.


Actual results:

If I reply to the address they send from encryption is not allowed, and with the received message I get a message that their Cert is valid but not necessarily them.


Expected results:

 I would like a feature to allow the Cert to be used for authentication/encryption to any "aliased" address in the Address Book (possibly with a warning that this is happening).
