|Get your certificate|
If you use S/MIME only with Robert Bosch GmbH, then a single certificate for your whole domain recommended. You can use any certificate you like, including a certificate from your own Certificate Authority.
Among others, a certificate from Comodo is free.
You may choose a generic e-mail address like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Don't use a real existing human person or the e-mail address of an administrator account.
Once you got the certificate, make sure it is in PEM format and that the PEM file includes the private key, the certificate and any intermediate certificates.
Make sure the filename includes the expiration date, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org
Copy email@example.com to the CERT\PRIV directory.
Open the original PEM file with an editor and remove the entire section containing the private key.
The private key is the section from -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY----- to -----END PRIVATE KEY-----.
Go to https://certsrv.bosch.com/publish.jsp, select the tab labeled Domain certificate and upload the PEM file without the private key.
Note: If your certificate is from your own Certificate Authority or from a Certificate Authority that is unknown to Robert Bosch GmbH, select the tab labeled CA certificate and upload your Certificate Authority certificate.
