A lot of work, but it's one good idea on the table. The client would
need to allow the applet to access the private key on his hard drive.

That's okay with me, too.. I think that interoperability and ubiquity
are good for everyone in the business. Bringing this stuff into
the home and into the cubicle is a big deal. IMHO, there's no room for
proprietary and weirdass products in the email business. The business
of email is bringing users together, not dividing users up, right?
