i am trying to setup RPC over HTTP on a outlook 2007 environment.
i have installed the certificate under trusted certificate authority and under local computer specifically, and the import was successfull. the OS i have is windows vista business. i have configured outlook the same way i did it on a windows xp OS SP2 where it worked fine.
Whenever i open outlook, it prompts me for the my username and password, after that i get the message:
"There is a problem with the proxy server's security certificate.
The Security certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority.
Outlook is unable to connect to the proxy server www.*******
(Error Code 18).

    Well you have to install the certificate properly.
    1.- Run IE explorer as an administrator.
          Right click on the icon and run as administrator.
    2.-Go to the site where you can dounload your certificate.
    3.- If you don't have a trusted certificate, On the certificates warning, Click on "Continue to this website (not recommended). "
    4.- Click on the certificate on the right side of the address bar then click on view certificate.
    5.- Click on install certificate follow the wizard.
    6.- ONLIKE XP, Choose Radio button: Place all certificate in the following store and click on browse.
    7.- Choose "Trusted root Certification Authorities", then click on next  then finish.
    That should do it.
