I'm hoping someone has a way of helping me to remote sync my HTC TYTN II with my work exchange server.

I have the server settings in place (that I took from my Treo 700) on my new phone, but when I try to sync I am getting the error message telling me that the security certificate on the server is invalid and I need to get the server admin' to install a valid one. Fair enough! But...

We are moving office in a couple of weeks and I don't think work is going to do anything about the server cert' until after then, which leaves me without my emails and outlook while out of the office. Is there anyway to get my HTC to ignore the fact the cert is invalid as my treo was obviously did? When I ported from telecom (treo) to vf (htc) the telecom data plan hadn't stopped straight away, so for a few days I could still sync on the treo even though the HTC was saying it couldn't due to this certificate issue.

Any help out there?

Thanks

First of all is it exchange 2003 or 2007? and I believe you're running wm6 on your tytnii?

Try to export the root certificate and import that on to your device as well as the cert thats been used to publish exchange. You can use owa to test all this... If you browse to https owa url you need to see all green (eg name matches, certificate valid (eg not expired), and trusted (including any root certs)). Ensure root certs are in the correct store when you import (I usually deselect the place certs automatically option).

Other than that pass ..?

Edit this should really go to the windows mobile forum Cool
