I would like to be able to configure a secure certificate for small business server 2003. I'm not sure how i go about doing that and would like some information on how easy it is to do this, any implications to doing it/not doing it etc. One thing to note is that i never configure a .com domain to the server and only the static ip address is used, which means users have to type in the static ip address i.e. mybusinessname.com/exchange to access the server. Do you need to configure a domain name to the server before you can use a secure certificate?
There will only be users from within the company accessing the server remotely, so is a secure certificate pointless for those since they already know that they can trust the company? or will it help their connections in anyway? at the moment they are just prompted with a message when accessing outlook web access that the server does not have a certificate, but they just click continue anyway, it does not seem to cause any problems.
One other thing i'm very curious about is if i do not configure a secure certificate for the server will that pose any problems for users trying to access exchange via their mobile phones?
