Hello,

Whenever I load up my OWA in IE7 I'm getting Certificate Error - This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority. I'm running Exchange 2003 and have OWA configured using only port 443. I have created a certificate as per instructions I have found from the web.

Is there a way for me to get around this error without purchasing a cert ?

Try to open the website of your certificate services (http://servername/certsrv). Then choose to download and install the CA root certificate. It should be added to the list of your Trusted Certificate Authority. You can verify this by running Start -> Run -> certmgr.msc. Browse for the Trusted Certificate Authorities, you will find the certificate of your root CA there. Afterwards this message should be gone. The problem is, you need to do this on all clients.

Hope this helps.

Kirschi,

Thanks for the help, I can't seem to get http://servername/certsrv to open. I keep getting page error.

Can anyone give me any suggestions on how to correct this ? It looks like a setup issue on my end, I can create certs but when tried outside the domain my certificate service is not verifying them.

Well, I am not sure. Did you set up a Microsoft CA yourself our did you buy a third-party certificate for OWA?

If you have a MS CA the servername in the URL should be your server where the Certificate Services are installed. Not the Exchange server (if they are not the same of course). Try to open the link to certsrv on the server itself.

If not you need to get the root certificate of the issuer of your third-party certificate and install it on the clients.
