Remarks

MailBee automatically selects the appropriate algorithms accordingly Windows defaults.

Use this class only if the application logic requires using certain cryptographic algorithms. To select algorithms to be used by S/MIME functions of MailBee, set Smime.EncryptionAlgorithm or Smime.HashAlgorithm properties.

Examples
