Wild Card Certificate and Outlook 2007
Posted on 2009-07-14
I am running windows 2008 small business server. We have implemented outlook anywhere with exchange 2007. Most of the clients are running Outlook 2007. SBS comes preconfigured with everything using Remote.domain.com and it was recommended to use a wild card ssl for different sub domains if necessary.
The issue i am running into is with Outlook Anywhere on the Outlook 2007 client machines. In the account setup on the client machine, In the exchange proxy settings, I have the setting use SSL checked, as well as Only connect to proxy servers that have this principal name in the certificate:
Everything works beautifully. But on semi-frequent occassions, the above setting is automatically changing in outlook to read: msstd:remote.domain.com and then it fails with the password prompt over and over again. As soon as i change the sub domain back to the * it all works again.
Is there anyway to get Outlook 2007 to stop changing that setting? I haven't seen it occur with any of the 2003 Outlook clients. Its really annoying. I have people that will work for a couple of months with no issues and then I have certain people that the setting changes every few weeks.
Any help would be appreciated.
