Need Windows Mobile / Wireless Activesync Help...

Trying to get Wireless Activesync going on some Windows Mobile phones...

Setup:
SBS 2003
OWA working on the outside, but is self-signed certificate
Blackjack 2 phones with Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard

1.  The phones have an email client built-in but I don't think its Outlook.  Will I need Windows Mobile Professional and/or Outlook Mobile for wireless email to work?
2.  Trying to get this to work with the self-signed SSL Certificate.  Will I need to purchase a public trusted SSL cert for this to work?
3.  I transferred the self-signed cert to the phone via activesync, and it shows up there but I can't find it in the corresponding directory on the phone to try and import it.  Is there a trick to doing this?

Thanks for your help

Self Signed certificates are simply not worth the headache trying to get it to work. Not when you can get a commercial certificate for US$30/year. https://CertificatesForExchange.com/ 

Therefore I would suggest changing that to begin with.

I am not aware of any Windows Mobile devices without Outlook unless you have a heavily customised firmware that has removed it. What makes you think it isn't pocket Outlook?

Simon,
I took your advice and purchased and installed a trusted cert.  OWA now works without any certificate warning.  We can get to it from the outside using https://mail.domain.com/exchange

The BlackJack 2 phone still will not sync.  They are getting an error with Support code: 0x085010014

Any ideas?
