Problem with a renewed self signed Cert

I have had to renew one of our exchange certificates as it expired, the renewal seemed to have worked as the new expiration date is 2013.
However I am now getting problems when windows mobile users are trying to sync their mail. I have exported and copied the new cert onto the handheld device and installed it but it is not working.
I realise that the best thing to do would be to pay for a trusted cert but I have to get this issue resolved first and then I will be able to look at that option.

Any help would be appreciated.

The CA is our backend 2003 Exchange server and our frontend server is holding out OWA site, Also Exchange 2003.

You have done all that you need to do to make this work, but I would imagine that some IIS settings are slightly incorrect as a result of installing the new certificate!!

Please check your settings against my article, run the test on the teat site, making sure you tick the 'Ignore Trust for SSL' check box and if you get stuck anywhere, please let me know.

Did you renew the cert directly through the IIS Website, if not then OWA is not aware of the new certificate. Give that a check.
