I have a windows mobile device in which will not accept the SSL certificate installed on it. This is down to the corruption of the windows mobile OS. So i would like to use Active Sync with out the SSL certifcate on the server side. Can anyone tell me how to remove/disable the SSL certificate in Exchange 2007 and if this would have any conciquences?

Find the Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync Virtual Directory in IIS Manager.  Look at it's properties (Directory Security), and uncheck Require Secure Channel.  The consequences are that anyone running a protocol analyser on your network might be able to see the users credentials, and read the messages being transferred to the client.

As simple as that!!! I shall give that a go. I understand that cociquence i was wondering if it had any bearing on OWA but i suppose that is a seperate virtual directory at which the SSL can be applied seperately??

Well, it must be the opposite of this:

(I just checked to make sure that you're not supposed to use Set-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory in EMS).

Has no effect at all on OWA.
