Reset Evolution NSS Certificate DB

I set a password on my Evolution certificate database in Xubuntu 14.10 Utopic, but must have typed something different than what I intended, so I wasn’t able to manage any of my S/MIME certificates. To reset the password, I deleted the files that are related to storing the NSS database in ~/.local/share/evolution.

  • cert8.db
  • key3.db
  • secmod.db

Then I was able to go through Edit -> Preferences -> Certificates -> Import to manage my S/MIME library.
