For now, I would recommend Thawte for free digital certificates, since
it would be recognised as valid by most browsers/email clients. A CAcert
certificate would require other people importing their root certificate,
and set it as "Trusted CA", and I am not sure if the other people would
know how to do it, or if they would be willing to do it :(
(CAcert is currently trying to get its certificate included by default
in FireFox... but I don't know how much time will it take.)
P.S: I have nothing against CAcert, in fact, I am willing to become a
CAcert assurer, but I can't ignore the disadvantage they have...
