I had similar problems when the certificates and keys where transfered
through Outlook. Both as attachments or inline, somehow Outlook managed to
munge something in the contents of the certificates and/or keys.
Downloading the exact same mail with webmail solved the problem. We now
zip everything we send to clients, this also solves the problem.

I don't know if this is your problem, but it sounds exactly the same.
