Hello experts. I have a windows SBS 2003 server ervice pack 2 and Exchange 2003 Service pack 2 with the following problem.

All exchange email clients (outlook) are working great. But employees trying to access OWA get the following stand error we've all seen at some time....

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.  

This only appears to happen when accessing OWA. I have a certificate installed, but still getting this error. This is worth 500 points for a quick answer.
