I need help with setting up a Palm Pre to use Exchange Activesync. I have Exchange 2007 standard on Windows 2008.  I have not purchased any certificates. I'd like to use a self signed one. Can anyone help with this. I'm new to Exchange 2007 so I'll need a little hand-holding and patience

Thanks for the information.  The links provided seem to require using a 3rd party certificate. I'd like to accomplish this with a self signed one.

yes. The way that I did it was to accept the certificate on a computer. I then exported the certificate on the Windows xp machine and emailed the .cer file to myself. On the Pre, I opened the email, opened the attachment and added it as a trusted certificate.
