Active sync SSL not working with windows 7 phone
Posted on 2010-11-09
have a new samsung windows 7 phone, trying to get active sync to my indows exchange 2003 server using a issued SSL.
when i try and connect outlook to the exchange i get error: “there is a problem with the certificate for mail.-blah-.com, error code: 80072f0d” (server reqs SSL is checked)
when i go to mail.-blah-.com/exchage i can log into the email account and it works from there, so the phone should have a SSL it downloaded via IE.
i went onto my exchange server , ran mmc, added cert snap in, went to personal, exported the certs, emailed them to the phone, installed them, phone said that one or more certs were sucessfuly installed, then trying to sync with phone, still getting the “there is a problem with the certificate for mail.-blah-.com, error code: 80072f0d” also the phone does have a 10 min screen lock setting turned on (idk if exchange wants it shorter or anything if that may be a problem)
also, i have tryed exporting the .cer in format base64.cer sending it to the phone, and installing, the phone says the cert is installed, but still getting a cert error. not this is a cert that we as a company made from a PSK, it is not from a CA
here is one idea a co-worker and were emailing around:
"since I exported the SSLs out of IIS, I know they are the right ones. Since the phone can access the web based exchange (and work), I know the SSL is in the phone. Chris is thinking there is a chance there’s a bug or something, that exchange is looking in its own directory (or at least a different place from IE) for an SSL, and when I manually installed the SSL onto the smart phone, it could of installed into a directory where IE looks for SSLs, since the web based version works, but outlook does not look there. Now… to find out how to decide where outlook would look for a SSL, and then how to install the SSL into that directory. "
any ideas would be great
