On 7 September I received a small packet containing a floppy disk marked
"Keystore Diskette" and a card which simply said:


        To install your KeyPOST material into a browser or server, 
                        visit the KeyPOST web site


                to download the free Keystore Converter

However, all the URL gave me was an error 404. So I have e-mailed Australia
Post about it.

Also I got a message from Australia Post 15 September, advising that KeyPOST
certificates can now be used to digitally sign and encrypt email. It makes
me wonder what they thought I was going to do with my certificate. Also I
noted that the message was not digitally signed.
