Is it possible to send encrypted and digitally signed e-mail messages using S/MIME through the SMTP Virtual Server component included in Windows Server 2008 or do I have to use Exchange?

If it is, what are the configuration settings required to make it work?

Thanks in advance

I haven't tried, but I don't see why it wouldn't be possible, since I believe it's up to the email client to handle encryption and signing.
