1) From: Cary Sean M MAJ MNCI C3 MNF-W LNO
Classification:  UNCLASSIFIED
Digital certificates - unless from a "recognized" source are useless -
but if they are from a reputable source (Verisign for example) - go
along with the e-mail and give a non-reputable signature that you are in
fact you...  We use them as part of a larger PKI - public key
infrastructure.  
The catch - I could add a "certificate server" to my home network,
declare who I was - but it would be useless...not verified by another
source.
Not sure why someone would enclose a cert for this kind of mail...
