I have got an email-account at They offer a s/mime 
certificate that I want to use with kmail. It works with mozilla and netscape 
just fine. But if I try to import it into gnupg with 
"gpgsm --import" I get the errormessage:
gpgsm: no issuer found in certificate
gpgsm: basic certificate checks failed - not imported

Any idea what is wrong?
