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.

That is correct this link will only work if you have a third party cert. have you install the cert on the phone,make sure you do that.
Let us know what is the error message you are getting on the phone.

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.
