Looking for a help please
Internet Router ---->ISA 2004--->Local Network ----->1. Domain Controller (DNS,DHCP,GC and etc)                                                                   2. Exchange 2007 SP1 (CA, Mailbox, Hub)
3. Other servers
+ Internal Domain = abc.local (domain abc is not actual)
+ External Doman = abc.com
+ mail.abc.com is registered in public domain
Recently we got the SSL certificate (GEOCERTS) and installed on one and only Exchange 2007 and as well ISA (import to)
In ISA 2004 I have published owa and rpc.
We have the following issues now.
1.      Outlook Anyware (RPC/HTTPS)
A)      If try access from local network we are getting the following security alert and if we click two times "yes" it is working. (1.JPG)
 
B)      If we try to access from external network
Always prompting for password. (Even off2007 vista) and it never go through.
2.      Outlook Web Access
a)      Internally if we go through https://severname.abc.local/owa it is giving certificate error as follow if we continue it works with error certificate.

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.
The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.
Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.
We recommend that you close this webpage and do not continue to this website.
Click here to close this webpage.
Continue to this website (not recommended).  

b)      Externally through https://mail.abc.com.owa it is working fine

Outlook Anywhere requires a different certificate than normal, as it will have to cover serveral hostnames:

exchange.domain.com
autodiscover.domain.com
internal.domain.local

The Cert you need is called a Unified Communications certificate - http://www.comodo.com/msexchange/index.html

Most SSL providers can sell you one

You need to have a UCC Certificate if you want to take full advantage of Exchange 2007 & Office 2007 (both of which you have).

Our clients are outlook 2003 and outlook 2007.

We actually implemented this certificate only because of OUTLOOK ANYWARE.

My question is now from this certificate (GEOCERTS QuickSSL) is there any way to work OWA, OUTLOOK ANYWARE and ACTIVE SYNC.

Please if any body have used this certificate before for this purpose.

Compnay will not allocate budget again for this  UCC certificate.

No. You still need a UCC Cert.

The problem is that the internal name (.local) is different that the external (.com), and the cert was issued for the .com. A UCC Cert will have both.

You could just use the external .com when using OWA and Outlook Anywhere internally.

If it is only the UCC is the solution i would like to go for Godaddy's Multiple Domain (UCC) 5 domains and requested the other vendor to refund the amount for the certficate.

Now please guide me what will be the sub domains other then mail.abc.com, for my purpose.
