    Default php mail() and ssl?

    Hi List

    I have form on my website but I need to send result of this form to address
    outside my server.
    I need to use X.509 v.3 certificate to secure this. Can you point me to some
    doc how to do that?
    I use php 4.X, apache,linux, sendmail.

    p.s or should I use smtp() instead of mail()

    I guess you mean that the MTA server connection requires SSL (x.509 certs
    can also be used to *sign* emails).

    It's rather tricky to do directly from PHP. An easier option might be to use
    stunnel to proxy the connection. You'll need a lot more information about
    the other end, particlaurly:

    1) do the use a negotiated TLS connection or is it encapsulated SMTP
    (SMTPS)?
    2) What level of authentication do they require - IIRC the spec does not
    require any level of authentication (i.e. you can usea self-signed cert)
    but some vendors products do require to establish the trust.

    They want something like S/MIME X.509 v.3 with public and private key
    (asimetric algorithm)
    So I think that "tricky" way is required.
