Did you install a public certificate?  This might be helpful and is recommended.  They do not cost that much anymore... personally I use www.certificatesforexchange.com.  You can find some info on Microsofts website on how to install the certificate here:

Good luck, Rob.

Hi,

Will the certificate also fix the following problem?

Hi,

I have a windows 2008 SBS, I have just setup IMAP access, the default logon method is a secure TLS logon.

Problem: When a client connects to the server via IMAP the certificate installed on the server is different to the domain name e.g.:
server name: server1.domain.local
domain name: domain.com.au

So every time a client connects they have to accept the certificate, how do we fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, a public certificate will fix that problem also.  You want the FQDN of the server to match your public certificate which you need to purchase.  They are not that expensive and worth while in my opinion.  As you can see by the MS article above they also recommend using a public certificate instead of the SBS generated one.  Good luck, Rob.

There was not enough information on that microsoft like that you sent me to install the certificate. I have posted another question regarding the installation of the certificate.

Cheers

Pablo.
