I had been wondering how S/MIME addressed mapping of an email address to a
directory server address. From the sound of this thread, I guess it doesn't.
So how are people doing this in practice? Is everyone setting up an LDAP
directory, then ignoring it and exchanging certificates by email? Or just
hardwiring a few LDAP servers into client configs?
