SYNOPSIS
       smime_keys <operation>  [file(s) | keyID [file(s)]]

DESCRIPTION
       The purpose of this tool is to  manipulate  the  internal  database  of
       S/MIME  certificates  used  by mutt to sign mail messages which will be
       sent or to verify mail messages received and signed with S/MIME.

OPTIONS

       refresh
              no  files  needed.  refreshes  index  files,   including   trust

       list   lists the certificates stored in database.

       label  keyID required. changes/removes/adds label.

       remove keyID required.

       verify 1=keyID  and  optionally 2=CRL.  Verifies the certificate chain,
              and optionally whether this certificate is included in  supplied
              CRL  (PEM format).  Note: to verify all certificates at the same
              time, replace keyID with "all".
