Hi...I have a PDA device with WM5 tried to activesync with Exchange 2003 SP2, the self cerfiticate's common name is: the exchange's computer netbios name, ie. ex2003. I got the error message during the sync. 0x80072f06.

I might be able to get rid of this error message by purchasing a certicate with common name, ie. ex2003.mydomain.com, however, it would invlove of of client changes. Is there a way to disable the certificate check like in WM2003? or change the registry in the device to bypass this message?

Alternaltively if the ex2003 is used as the activesync's server address, the error message is: 0x85002003 the server could not be reached. this can be caused by temporary network conditions. but I am able to ping the ex2003 from the device. how to get around issue without replacing the cerficate?

thanks,
fshguo.

You really should do the certificate change. If you purchase a certificate it shouldn't require any changes on the clients because there is nothing to install. If the purchased certificate is from a supplier who is trusted (RapidSSL and GoDaddy's certificates are trusted by IE6, GoDaddy's by Windows Mobile as well) then you will be fine, as the certificate will be checked against the trusted list first.

There are various hacks for trying to disable the certificate checking, but some of these have been disabled by the mobile phone operators.

Alternate solution - turns out our IT group had used a wildcard for certification management (e.g., *.company.com) and WM5 was not able to handle the change. They added in the specific SMTP server address (e.g., smtp.company.com) and this sorted the problem.
