    for one given user its all perfect ... i get asked for certificate and after recieving im able to send email and on the other end recieve it successfully , but the recieving user is either not asked for smtp auth for the same or doesnt accept smtp auth ... when this user sends any mail using same certificate

    The cert is for sending emails, not for receiving, so if your second user receives emails, the cert isn't used.
    Also, if you use one email client for both accounts, you have to accept the cert only once.

    thanks for information falko ..
    here is my scenario ive made cacert.pem with infornation
    Location : blahblah
    Organisation : blahblah
    blah
    blah
    email : [email protected]
    ========================
    sendmail.pem also with same settings ..
    =============================
    now i have to use these certificate ..
    my question is .. will this certificate be valid for [email protected] ...
    and not [email protected] ..
    i have 2 different mail clients "outlook for user1" and "thunderbird for user2"
    so both are on different mail clients .. outlook accepts certificate and successfully sends mail to user2 ........ but my other client after accepting certificate fails authentication .....
    my confusion is does the email notified in cacert.pem & sendmail.pem ....
    has anything to with it ... what should i do .. please help as i have already messed up my setup 4 times being crazy ......... HELP ..

    thanks
