Using wildcard ssl cert on outlook web access caused exchange activesync to error

I just replaced an expired thawte SSL cert on our OWA server (2003) with a wildcard SSL cert we bought for the organization.  The wildcard cert works great for everything else but when exchange activesync on windows mobile devices trys to connect it gets this error:

"you have an incorrect ssl cert common name in the host name field."

I know the wildcard SSL cert uses "*" and EAS is looking for, but it works fine going through any browser.

Are there any settings that will allow this to work, or am I going to have to get a non-wildcard cert for this server only?

Wildcard certs do not mix with WM5 (i believe WM6 fixed it)
