Multiple Answer, Multiple Choice

 

You are using Windows Mail on your Windows Vista computer. You want to send an e-mail using a certificate to prove your identity to the recipient.

 

What is the correct method to send an e-mail using a certificate? (Choose two. Each option is a complete answer.)

 

 

  1. While composing an e-mail, click the Tools menu and then click Encrypt.
  2. While composing an e-mail, click the Encrypt message button on the toolbar in the New Message window.
  3. While composing an e-mail, click the Tools menu and then click Digitally Sign.
  4. While composing an e-mail, click the Digitally Sign message button on the toolbar in the New Message window.

 

Answer:
C. While composing an e-mail, click the Tools menu, and then click Digitally Sign.
D. While composing an e-mail, click the Digitally Sign message button on the toolbar in the New Message window.

 

Tutorial:
The option stating “While composing an e-mail, click the Tools menu and then click Digitally Sign” is correct. Digital IDs are referred to as certificates. You can send an e-mail using a digital ID from Windows Mail that allows the recipient to verify an e-mail was actually sent by you. You can also use a digital ID to encrypt messages, keeping them private. Encrypted messages are messages signed with a digital ID that you can send in a scrambled format that can be read only by your recipient. You and recipient, however, must have copies of each other’s digital ID to be able to send and read encrypted messages.

 

The option stating “While composing an e-mail, click the Digitally Sign message button on the toolbar in the New Message window” is correct. You can add a certificate to a new message in Windows Mail either by selecting the Digitally Sign option on the Tools menu or by clicking the Digitally Sign message button on the toolbar in the New Message window.

 

The option stating “While composing an e-mail, click the Tools menu, and then click Encrypt” is incorrect. You can send an encrypted message by using these steps. But before sending an encrypted message, you must have a digital ID in Windows Contacts for each intended recipient. For example, when you send an encrypted e-mail message to a group of people, only those people would be able to read the message whose certificates are installed in Windows contacts, and other people will receive a prompt to provide credentials before they can read the message.

 

The option stating “While composing an e-mail, click the Encrypt message button on the toolbar in the New Message window” is incorrect. You can send an encrypted message by using these steps. But before sending an encrypted message, you must have a digital ID in Windows Contacts for each intended recipient.
