Unhappy How do I back up my certificates in Evolution? When the Backup button is unclickable!

Hello everyone,

I have a serious problem with very important certificates in the Evolution mail client.
Literally my employment status depands on this.

I am in the process of moving all of my data from a Debian GNU laptop (GNOME desktop) to my new MacBook and I can't backup my private certificates in Evolution. When I go to Edit/Preferences menu -> Certificates/Your Certificates item, the "Backup" and "Backup all" buttons are inactive (the text is gray and I can't click them).

Anyone has any idea on how to activate those buttons? I've been searching the web for two days with no results and I would've given up already if it weren't my important work mail accounts I am talking about.

I have found several howtos on how to backup the certificates telling me to click the Backup button but I have no idea what to do if this very button is unclickable!

I desperately need some help. I hope anyone could tell me what to do. Please..

I am using Evolution

Thanks a lot.
(sorry for my English)
