windows cetificates

hi,

is there any way to decrypt an email (already read with poplib, so
available on client side) with python using a window certificate (those
we can see on ie/internet options/content/certificates) ?

the purpose is to decrypt an email sent and crypted by the sender with
both his own certificate and the recipient one.

thanks for any help.

If the messages use standard encoding, you should be able to use CAPICOM.
The interfaces are fairly simple to use through win32com.client.
The 'capicom.envelopeddata' object encrypts and decrypts using certificate keys.
