I need to generate a new certificate for the boss on his new SBSB2008 server but one that won't prompt him to have to punch a PIN nor a password when it's configured for his PDA. Can anyone please give me the steps to go about that. Thanks.

This is more specific to the pda than the server.  The pin rquirement would be something that the pda requires.  With certificate authentication the key is that the pda trusts the certificate authority that issued the certificate.  Ideally you would be able to add the servers certificate to the trusted authorities on the pda.  Otherwise you would need to find out what Certificate Authorites that the pda trusts and then order a 3rd party certificate from one of those authorites to place on the server.  My first step would be to check with the manufacturer of the pda to see whether you can control whether a pin is required through some form of configuration.  Hope this helps post more info if this does not get you anywhere.

The type of cell is a Samsung. An old model. I don't have it in front of me now. The options for the phone to lock is either 1 minute or 5 minutes only. I noticed in Exchange Management '07, under Organization Config, Client Access; their is a Windows SBS Mobile Mailbox Policy. I go to properties and uncheck the require password from the password tab. I still get nothing. Is there anywhere else that I would need to disable in Exchange so that the boss man doesn't have to punch in a PIN/password on his phone?

Do I possibly need to re-generate the certificate? I have to place the cert onto the phone with configurinng the phone for the SBS2008 in order for the emails to come through on it.

This has been resolved already. I thought I classified that already.
