TCP/IP-channel-specific options: CLIENT_CERT_NICKNAME (string)

(New in Messaging Server 7.0.5) This SMTP client option specifies the certificate to use for SMTP client authentication via STARTTLS. The nickname follows the same format as other certificate nicknames in Messaging Server. It is split at the first ":" character, and the portion prior to the colon is the security token; the portion subsequent to the ":" character is the certificate nickname in that security token. If no ":" character is present, then the NSS built-in certificate databases are used. Note that CLIENT_CERT_NICKNAME should only be used with IGNORE_BAD_CERT=0 set, as otherwise the security it can provide is defeated.
