It must be a KMail problem. I know that it used to work very nicely all
the years since we started the S/MIME support about 10 years ago. Thus
I assume there is a regression in KMail. I don't have a current version
running here for a quick test.
GnuPG (i.e. gpgsm) does not know anything about S/MIME - it merely
creates data according to the CMS encryption/signing standard. GPGME
(the library between KMail and GnuPG) also has no knowledge about
S/MIME. KMail is responsible to pack that into a MIME structure.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
