Im running Windows 2008 server 64 bit and exchange 2007 in order to make outlook anywhere work i
bought a godaddy certificate. After that the owa does not work anymore. It does not prompt for password.



I think this could be the reason... Strange since i imported the certificate like the instructions said.

Source:        MSExchangeTransport
Event ID:      12014
Task Category: TransportService

Computer:      ns.nordicsol.local

Microsoft Exchange couldn't find a certificate that contains the domain name mail.nordicsol.no in the personal store on the local computer. Therefore, it is unable to support the STARTTLS SMTP verb for the connector Default NS with a FQDN parameter of mail.nordicsol.no. If the connector's FQDN is not specified, the computer's FQDN is used. Verify the connector configuration and the installed certificates to make sure that there is a certificate with a domain name for that FQDN. If this certificate exists, run Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services SMTP to make sure that the Microsoft Exchange Transport service has access to the certificate key.

There is a new type of certificate that is used for Exchange 2007 that allows for SAN.  It is called a univeral communications certificate.  Entrust sells them relitivly cheap.  It looks like your problem is that the certificate is not resolving the subdomain name of the FQDN to a valid certificate.

Not what im looking for at the moment, considering that many other people have used certificates from godaddy to secure their server. But thanks for the input and the links.
