It's only an eval copy but:

Otherwise, I'd suggest just using the Java Cryptography API and signing the data BEFORE you put it into the JavaMail objects. Sign the data and then send the encyrpted bytes as the message.

Thanks for the reply.
Will it posible to digitally sign an email by
contacting a third party certification authority
(to generate the signature).
The link that you have posted seems to support only fixed algorithms.
