That is almost certainly a certificate error.
Who supplied your SSL certificate, or is it home grown?
If you browse to do you get a certificate prompt?

If you are getting an SSL prompt then EAS will not work.
It cannot cope with the SSL certificate prompt.
You can try installing the certificate on to the device, but I find that rarely works reliably. Instead get an SSL certificate that is trusted by Windows Mobile. GoDaddy do those ( as do InstantSSL. GoDaddy are US$20 a year, InstantSSL a little more.

Doesn't really matter - the TurboSSL certificates are fine.
Do ensure that you read the instructions that come with the certificate carefully. You have to put two certificates on to your server - which doesn't take long, but get it the wrong way round and you can be banging your head against a wall for hours.
