comment How does a Certificate Private Key get transferred on import / export?
@NeilSmithline There are cases where private key recovery is useful, e.g. when the key is used to encrypt emails or backups. In those cases, a lost key would render the data irrecoverable, so having it available from the CA would be useful. But apart from those cases, the CA shouldn't have or need to have the private key. (Key recovery is available in other CA platforms as well, e.g. EJBCA.)

Anybody can set any email address in the From:-line of an email. The address in itself is not grounds for worry.
