  How to Set Up Encrypted Mail on Mac OS X
Subject:   Duplicate Certificates in Keychain
Date:   2007-04-12 06:41:27
From:   jasonedwards
I requested, received and installed the Thawte Certificate as per the instructions of the article. After I exported the certificate from Firefox I imported it to a separate keychain (B). My default login keychain is called (A). Everything seems to work except...


I have 2 certificate in keychain A... although I imported the certificate to keychain B.


Keychain A (defualt) contains:
1) jasonedwards@myemail.com certificate
2) Thawte Personal Freemail Issuing CA expires 2013


Keychain B (the one I imported cert to) contains:
1) jasonedwards@myemail.com certificate (duplicate from A)
2) Thawte Personal Freemail Issuing CA expires 2013 (duplicate from A)
3) Thawte Personal Freemail CA expires 2020


My questions are...
Why do I have anything in A if I imported the cert to B?
Can I delete the certificates from A?
What are the differences/uses for the 3 different Certificates?


Thanks for the time,


Jay
