    Have a script that sends an email report. Need to have the email digitally signed.
    Any way i can send a digitally signed email using Powershell ?

    That gets into a lot of complexity. Using just the native Send-MailMessage, you'd have to construct the signed, multipart MIME body of the message manually, and then PowerShell could definitely send it.

    If you're using the .NET Framework's SMTPClient, you might be able to.

    $cert = # get a certificate object from the CERT: drive
    $smtp = new-object -type

    Something like that. See the conversation at

    Also check out and see if that helps. It relies on a third-party class, but there's a download link provided.
