<h4><?=_("Email Accounts and Client Certificates")?></h4>
<p><?=_("The email account section is for adding/updating/removing email accounts which can be used to issue client certificates against.

<h4><?=_("Domains and Server Certificates.")?></h4>
<p><?=_("Before you can start issuing certificates for your website, irc server, smtp server, pop3, imap etc you will need to add domains to your account under the domain menu. You can also remove domains from here as well. Once you've added a domain you are free then to go into the Server Certificate section and start pasting CSR into the website and have the website return you a valid certificate for up to 2 years if you have 50 trust points, or 6 months for no trust points.")?></p>
<h4><?=_("Org Client and Server Certificates")?></h4>
<p><?=_("Once you have verified your company you will see these menu options. They allow you to issue as many certificates as you like without proving individual email accounts as you like, further more you are able to get your company details on the certificate.")?></p>
<h4><?=_("CAcert Web of Trust")?></h4>
<p><?=_("The Web of Trust system CAcert uses is similar to that many involved with GPG/PGP use, they hold face to face meetings to verify each others photo identities match their GPG/PGP key information. CAcert differs however in that we have modified things to work within the PKI framework, for you to gain trust in the system you must first locate someone already trusted. The trust person depending how many people they've trusted or meet before will determine how many points they can issue to you (the number of points they can issue is listed in the locate assurer section). Once you've met up you can show your ID and you will need to fill out a CAP form which the person assuring your details must retain for verification reasons. You can also get trust points via the Trust Third Party system where you go to a lawyer, bank manager, accountant, or public notary/juctise of the peace and they via your ID and fill in the TTP form to state they have viewed your ID documents and it appears authentic and true. More information on the TTP system can be found in the TTP sub-menu")?></p>
