That is almost certainly a certificate error.
Who supplied your SSL certificate, or is it home grown?
If you browse to https://host.domain.com/oma do you get a certificate prompt?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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 (http://www.domainsforexchange.net/) as do InstantSSL. GoDaddy are US$20 a year, InstantSSL a little more.

which one of these?

Turbo SSL Certificate
Domain Only Validation

      High-Assurance SSL Certificate
Full Company (or Individual) Validation

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.
