Certificate problems

I currently host a small exchange server with about 10 users. I have a SSL Certificate installed from RapidSSL. The problem I am having is that when I go to http://exchgsvr.moermond.com/exchange I get a "There is a problem with this websites certificate". The problem is not so much for remote users as it is for synchronizing to my treo device. Everytime I try to synchronize I get a certificate error message on my treo. Any suggestions?

it should be https:// or?

Sorry for the typo. Yes it should be https://exchgsvr.moermond.com/exchange
I'm guessing you did not install the intermediate certificate in the intermediate cert store on the server.

start here and run this utility:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=cabea1d0-5a10-41bc-83d4-06c814265282&displaylang=en

looks like ssl is setup on the server without a problem.  https://exchgsvr.moermond.com/exchange/ works in both IE and firefox.

i assume you are using a windows treo and trying to activesync to your server?  I seem to remember something like this in the past.  on the default website > security tab > secure communications (edit button) - is that set to require ssl?  if so that should not be set.  

Also, when connecting to activesync you are not entering /exchange/.  the server name should just be exchgsvr.moermond.com.

Now i might be misunderstanding you as you said things completely contradictory to what i've just said, so please be more specific
