SSL Certificates with Windows Mobile

I have been trying to figure this out for weeks now and can't.

We are currently running Small Business Server 2008 and Exchange 2007.
I have an A record at mx1.ourdomain.net that points to our external IP of our server.

When we used to run SBS 2003, I could visit https://mx1.ourdomain.net/exchange for OWA.
I guess this changed in SBS 2008, now for OWA I need to visit https://mx1.ourdomain.net/owa
or when I am on site I can visit https://remote.ourdomain.net/owa

I don't know a lot about this, but this is how I perceive this to work.  mx1.ourdomain.net points to the IP which then points to remote.ourdomain.net internally?

For a SSL cert to work, should I change the sub domain "mx"1 to" remote" on my web host so they are the same?

or can I avoid all this hassle by using a wild card certificate?

right now i have a cert for SSL cert for remote.ourdomain.net installed and I get a certificate error when connecting from activesync on windows mobile 6.1 and 6.5.

I did copy the certificate to the phone and installed it manually, but not sure if I took the certificate from the right place.  Should I export it from IIS?  How do I do that?

Is this a commerical cert or self-signed?

To export the cert you can do this from a web browser.   Just open IE and click on the cert lock and select view cert, click details tab, Copy to File...

Why not setup another A record externally for remote.ourdomain.net  to point to the same IP as MX1?   This should resolve a lot of issues.

 wild card certificates are not all that good for Exchange...you will want to get a UCC Cert

I am adding the sub domain remote.mydomain.net now.
and updating the A record for it.

I'll post back with an update soon.

Setting up another A record on remote.ourdomain.net worked perfectly.

Both windows mobile phones are syncing and even a palm pre is syncing also, which has been giving me such a headache!

Thanks!
