New CSR for Exchange 2007 - Does not generate a pending request in IIS

I purchased a SSL cert from godaddy, and am trying to get it installed on my Exchange Server.

It Windows Server 2003, with Exchange 2007 running.

I have tried using the Exchange Management Shell to generate a CSR, which it does, however IIS 6.0 does not show that request is pending, even though CSR is generated correctly in the mgmt. shell.

Ignore IIS.
It has nothing to do with the certificate requests in Exchange 2007. Everything is done through the Shell.

Follow my guide here: http://www.sembee.co.uk/archive/2008/05/30/78.aspx
That will show you how to process the request and then install and activate the certificate.

Ok, for domain users, on external connections, that works great, thank you.

However, users who are not logged in (such as a home pc) to their domain accounts, NTLM does not work, but Basic does, however they need to enter their password each time.

How should we configure the Exchange/IIS for non-domain users to connect to their domain user mailbox?

The only 2 options I see on the client side are Basic and NTLM.

If they are not members of the domain then they will need to enter their password. Anything else is a security risk because Exchange/Outlook is primarily designed to work on a domain environment where the security of the client machine is controlled by Windows. When the machine is not on the domain that doesn't happen, so Outlook needs to prompt.

Did you mean to enter that in this question? It isn't related to your original question.

No, it didnt have anything to do with the original request, but it was somewhat related. However you can save the password, however you have to configure it through your user account on, the local machine. (manage passwords)
