I noticed that starting in CF11 you can encrypt emails via CFMAIL. But from the Adobe Help Page on CFMAIL, you have to have the recipient's PKI certificate on your server and provide the path to that cert. Is there not a way for CFMAIL to reach out to a PKI and get the public key of the recipient?

I would assume not, because CFMAIL doesn't really reach out to anything. It talks to an SMTP server, which is typically put in place only to relay mail under secure conditions to other servers. Any conversation between your SMTP server and the recipient's server is performed only by the SMTP server.

Thank you, Dave. Even though you assume, it makes sense so I'm marking your answer as correct.
