I just got OWA configured on an Exchange 2003 server with SSL and Forms-based authentication. It's working great from PCs, and I even followed the procedure outlined at http://www.petri.co.il/problems_with_forms_based_authentication_and_ssl_in_activesync.htm
to get around the problem EAS/OMA evidently has with SSL and FBA.
However, even after doing this fix, I still can't get EAS or OMA to work-- all my attempts to use either one from mobile devices either time out or fail with "invalid certificate" errors. I set up the Exchange server with a GoDaddy SSL certificate figuring that I was saving myself a lot of headaches over going with a self-signed cert, but it seems that I just created another headache, because based on this
: there seems to be a problem with GoDaddy certs and mobile devices. Sure enough, doing a test at https://testexchangeconnectivity.com
reports "certificate trust validation failed...missing intermediate certificate".
Question: What's the best way to resolve this issue? The steps in the above KB article make me a little nervous about breaking something I've already got working, and to make matters worse they don't quite agree with the procedure outlined in a GoDaddy article
that's cited within the same Microsoft KB. (Plus, the GoDaddy article talks about Exchange 2007, and this is 2003. Not sure if that's even an issue, but I'm not taking any chances.)
