Apple iPhone will not verify or validate certificate thus cannot get email calendar contacts etc
After walking through the mail setup procedure on the iphone I get stuck at a message that states that it cannot verify or validate the certificate for the exchange server.  The device thus won't attach to the server. I need to access the email and calendar in the right programs and not through safari web browsing. In safari I can access the OWA which is very tiny and very slow.

Anyone know how to get past that validation error

Hello
What happends when u click accept on the self signed certificate?

The standards root certs are: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2185
But u should be able to use your own. I have it and its working perfect.

Take a look at Enterprise Deployment Guide, page 37:

Hmm so when you click accept cert its ok and after that it say that it cant verify?
OWA via Safari is a diffrent thing so that dosent matter in this case.

What kind of Exchange server do you have? 2003 or 2007?
If u have 2003 make sure that u have exchange sp2 installed.

I went the easy route. Buy a cert instead of using the self cert.
Thanks for your time anyway
