outlook anywhere unable to connect to the proxy server - error code 8

I have a 2003 SBS server and I have setup self signed certificate using my own CA. I am able to access OWA using https. But when I tried to setup outlook anywhere on outlook, it's giving me this error (see attachment).

I tried to way to setup. One is through the SBS wizard. But I only see one domain certificate in CA, no web cert. The other way I set it up manually.

found out the solution. Need to export the cert from server directly and install on client machine.

Self signed certificates will always give you trouble, specially with SSL
You can get very cheap certificates from godaddy for example that will save you alot of trouble.

I've been able to work around this issue by manually installing the web certificate (The one you see when you go to the OWA page) in the right container.
First add the site to the trusted websites
Then go to the owa page and go to the certificate. (should present you with a warning)
Don't let IE do it by itself but manually install the certificate in the trusted base certificate instances

Hope it works for you.

Good luck

thank you for your link, but this will not help my case. My owa is working anyway, the problem is I cannot get https over rpc working

it hangs together very closely.
You need to import the certificate the right way in IE to get Outlook over RPC working.
The one can't exist without the other.

please try the procedure
