i have recently installed a sbs 2008 server. on our previous sbs 2003 i installed an ssl cert primarily so that we could use mobile email. i updated the cert for use on 2008 and installed it but i had to change the cert name under the default website from the default remote.domain..... to what we use which is mailgate.domain..... mobile email now works but i seem to get many errors including cert mismatched on one client when he uses outlook 2003.

    The subject name of the certificate must match the site name addressed as entered.  So if your cert was issued to remote.domain and you are trying to use that for mailgate.domain then the names do not match - it is behaving correctly.  You need to reissue the certificate.  Since is an email server, I'm assuming you want a commercial cert - check out godaddy they have really cheap prices.
