    It is not necessary.
    But if u use self signed,u have install the certificate on every client.
    or u will get a popup mentioned over here
    MS recommends third party certificate for outlook anywhere.

    Correct, if you do not have money rather wait than installing/creating your own one.

    Self generated certificates are not supported for use with Outlook Anywhere. If yo want to use Outlook Anywhere then you must use a commercial certificate.

    Yes, you can buy one rather for a cerified provider. - Do not create your own one (trust me - done that and had to buy one)
