I have an OWA site that I would like to use SSL to secure.  I would like to do this using my own CA on my redundant domain controller.  How would l go about doing this so that users can access it securely from inside and outside my network?

You can, but I don't see the point, particularly when you can get SSL certificates for US$20/year.

I have outlined my main arguments in this blog posting: http://www.sembee.co.uk/archive/2006/03/05/9.aspx

Yes, you can but if the clients dont trust the root they will get an warning on the page or you have to deploy the root cert to the client.......

Its much easiter to purchase a cert then deal with the hassle but yes you can easily set up your Own CA and issue certs
