Hi,
I want to set up exchange active sync on my iphone. The problem I am getting is that my iphone wont sync with the exchange server. When I run a test on https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/ it says there is a problem with my certificate.

The SSL Certificate failed one or more certificate validation checks.
the same came up when I ran the test for RPC Over https

I bought the cert off godaddy,
but I am not sure hot to fix this.

Version of exchange? Type of certificate?

Does the cert have the url that you are trying to access, like mail.domain.com?

This issue occurs because an intermediate certification authority (CA) certificate is not present on the device or on the Exchange Server server with which you are synchronizing.

Hey, I have it working.
In that article it states:
Make sure that Require secure channel (SSL) is not enabled, and then click OK.
Well I had it enabled! Thanks for your help earlier.
