The Java security API manages certificates and signing much like the MacOS keychain does, and thankfully the two interoperate since the [MacOS X JDK 1.4.1 update]:
Native support for the security features is provided through the Mac OS X Secure Transport API. This allows users to manage certificates through their Keychain and the Keychain Access application.
Which is nice, since I was all about to test and implement it myself! This means that with Javamail and the [bouncycastle] S/MIME provider, signatures and crypto should be about as transparent to the user as they are with Mail.app
