oma for exchange server 2003 configuration

Do I need to enable imap4 and pop3 virtual server under system manager/protocols inorder for an itouch or other mobile devices to connect to my exchange server? Also what are the security risks that I should consider before doing so?

You will only need one or the other (IMAP is best) if you have a device that can't use ActiveSync.  There are no particular security risks associated with POP or IMAP, other than that the credentials are passed to the server in plain text, which makes the use of SSL desirable.

ONce Imap4 service is enabled, then can I use my existing certificate that I have for OWA to be issued for the virtual server for imap4?

Ah, I've never used SSL with IMAP, so I can't really answer that one.  Other than to suggest that it can't do any harm to try it.
