OWA certificate issue

Hello all,
With IE7 whenever i try logging onto our Outlook Web Access we have the red address bar, advising us not to continue. I am aware this isn't an issue but my clients are not and would like it resolved. I have imported the certificate but this still hasn't resolved the issue.
Thanks
Olly

this is normal, you are seeing the self created cert by your sbs server.
Click at the right of the refresh and stop button, a rectangle that says the cert can't be trusted.
There you will have the option to install the cert.
Install the cert in the trusted root store, then it won't ask you again.

The best solution is to purchase a certificate. You don't want to have to install the certificate on every machine that is used. That is not only unprofessional but can be a security risk. See my blog here on why you shouldn't use a home grown SSL certificate. http://www.sembee.co.uk/archive/2006/03/05/9.aspx

You need to purchase a certificate that is trusted - which means the "free" certificates solutions are not suitable.
There are three suppliers I tend to suggest.
RapidSSL (Geotrust) http://www.rapidssl.com/
InstantSSL http://www.instantssl.com/ 
Certificates for Exchange (Go Daddy) http://www.certificatesforexchange.com/ 

RapidSSL offer a free 30 day trial certificate that is trusted, then charge about US$60 a year, although I have seen it cheaper through resellers.
InstantSSL and Go Daddy both offer certificates that are trusted by Windows Mobile 5.0 and higher, although I believe you have to ask for the InstantSSL to issue the certificate from the correct root certificate for that support. Go Daddy certificates are US$20 a year.

hm, it should reolve the issue if you add it to the trusted root.
Maybe you didn't configure your cert correctly in the CEICW (connect to the internet wizard).
Make sure it's the same as the FQDN you are connecting to from the outside.
