Evolution Certificate Store

Asked by Markus Gonaus on 2016-11-29

Where is the certificate store located in evolution 3.22.1 /Ubuntu 16.10 ?

Whenever I try to import my S/MIME certificate to Evolotion it asks me for a password for the "NSS User Private Key and Certificate Services"

I guess the certificate store is not initialised. But have no idea how o do it.

Sounds like you need to unlock your gnome keyring

Thanks for the link. This is not my problem. But i figured it out with the help of strace myself a few minutes before.

The Key Databases are stored in the ~/.pki/nssdb/ directory. For reasons I do not know, I had some files there.
Deleting cert9.db key4.db pkcs11.txt in this directory made Evolution create it from scratch with the password I gave.

Great share. Hopefully this will help others
