Allow different email addresses in smart card certificate and Microsoft Exchange account

Defines if ActivClient checks that the smart card certificates used to configure the Microsoft Outlook profile (and also published to the GAL) are associated to the current Microsoft Outlook user. Specifically, it validates that the certificate email address corresponds to the email address configured for the Microsoft Exchange account.

If this setting is not configured or disabled, then the email address in certificate is checked against the address configured for the user in Microsoft Exchange account.
