This may help:

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q261/6/55.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=36871&rnk=1&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=MSALL

If the link doesn't work it refers to Q261655.  Go to http://support.microsoft.com and search for that Q number.

Hope that helps.

Can you verify that the correct version of crypt32.dll is installed?  Server A & Server B refer to your certificate server and your exchange server.  Server A can be the same as server B.  I would follow the rest of the steps in the Q article and see if that helps.  Can you make an SSL connection to the exchange server?  Do you use SSL for OWA?

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

Seems that SP2 puts on ver 5.131.2195.2833 of Crypto32.dll.  Where can I get the correct version.  We are currently not using SSL for anything at this point.
