Hi gang.

As I said in my previous topic I have bought a HTC TyTN II with WM6 installed.

I want to get push mail setup with my exchange 03 server (I know its old but I don’t have a 64 bit server at my disposal to run 07).

It is using a Self Signed SSL cert (for OWA) and I want to access exchange on my WM device.

I am under the impression that I have to install the server cert on my device - so i export it and install it.

However I have no luck-Anyone have any words of wisdom for me :P

I would love to get this deployed on my device (even though its pre-pay)

After much trouble trying to get self-signed SSL certs to work with WM5 and Exchange 2k3, we decided it was just simpler to get a signed certificate.

May not be the cheapest option, but it'll save you a LOT of headache. works quite well (Comodo SSL).

This is more of a windows mobile question I think.

Have you tried these instructions?

Edit: the connon name of the server cert must be the same as your public domain name, otherwise, the Activesync will still reject the connection

Edit 2: DER encoded binary is what you need to use. In my case, I used a copy of client's server's root cert on IE on their desktop. I exported it in DER format then copied it to a client's phone, tapped it and install certificate.

Also ... a great certificate import utility here ...
