Jeff,
I got an error from my tested smart phone saying "Server certificate not valid. contact... to install a valid cert." etc...

for some reason, the 3rd party cert. that was purchased couldn't install because it require to run an application before doing so...

I've renamed it but still won't do?

what's the right method to install a cert. onto a smart phone with ext. (cer)?
note that renamed to "crt" or "cer" doesn't works!

Sam
"still show errors on this link: https://mail.domainname.com/exchange"

I meant to say that the error was,...
Link doesn't work!
broken!@

I didn't even get the link to work when typed it into IE.

the link works for you?! (yes, I am using my actual domain name)
i done all that before i replied my post here at E.E
(flushdns/registerdns) and even restarted the server...
no luck!

even now, after i followed your instruction on the above posted reply. I am missing some thing here...

Certificates,
i bought a third party cert. as I said...I am trying to install it onto the test cell-smart-phone but couldn't do it due to an application has to be run in order to execute that cert that i purchased.

I am going to try the link you posted.
Sam
wait a minute... are we talking about the same link? https://mail.domainname.com/exchange?
----
I can't test that instance now. (public certificate)
I wasn't sure if it will stop all my other works being test/run such as rww/wss i.e

just wondering why all the sudden, smart phone said server cert. not valid?

I tried to open the link https://mail.domainname.com/exchange and it DOESN'T work for me either.

Certificate "error message:
the server's certificate is invalid. contact server admin........ to install a valid certificate!

I installed both selfsigned and third party certs. (purchased) into server / smart-phone (selfsigned only) & still shown error messages? is there a way to install third party certificate onto smart-phone?
----

"If you have a 3rd party certificate you need to install it into the SBS.  But that's a completely different process that is described here:  http://blogs.technet.com/sbs/archive/2007/08/21/how-to-install-a-public-3rd-party-ssl-certificate-on-iis-on-sbs-2003.aspx

also, does running this instance above cause my test applications (rww/wss/oma & owa) stop
functioning?
