For email certificates, I can recommend Comodo. They do allow you to
create an exportable certificate. To get an exportable email
certification go to their website: 'Free Secure Email Certificates
Secure Email Certificate Email Security Digital Email Signatures'
When you get into the screen where you enter your details, click
advanced options, and select make this certificate exportable.
If you've already got a certificate from comodo, then you'll have to
request that the existing one is revoked and ask them to issue you a new
one and use the advanced options on the sign up page.
Whether or not a digital certificate is exportable is not a function of
Vista. It is the responsibility of the certificate issuer.
