Your using a self signed cert and the name is just mail and needs to be mail.dk-systems.com

If you are going to use a selfsigned cert and not a publicly trusted cert run this command to make the cert namespace match that of your DNS namespace

Run in Exchange shell then enable for iis:
New-ExchangeCertificate -SubjectName "c=US,o=DKSystems,cn=mail.dk-systems.com"

Enable-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint <thumbprint of cert> -Services IIS

Once done install the cert on the workstation you are attempting to connect with Outlook Anywhere into the Trusted Root certificates
