Kleopatra: invalid S/MIME certificates are offered for encryption
Testing, WishlistPublic


Invaild S/MIME certificates are offered for encryption in Kleopatra. This then correctly results in an error message when trying to encrypt.

Expected: That the invalid certificate is not offered in the first place, since encryption with t is not possible anyway.

This is because Kleopatra does not differentiate between invalid S/MIME and unverified OpenPGP certificates and we want to be able to encrypt to unverified OpenPGP certificates.

Still this should be changed. I am setting it as wishlist because it was never different.

It should no longer be possible to choose invalid S/MIME certificates as signing or encryption keys via the drop-down boxes or the input field. (The key selection dialog still offers all certificates.)
