We generally still use XP with OFFICE 2003, but recently upgraded a handful of machines to Windows 7 and OFFICE 2010. The upgraded machines now flash a security alert when OUTLOOK opens with 2 checked messages about valid certificates and an X warning "The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site". I just want to disable the damn thing for now. How can I do that? It does not harm anything but users are complaining at the new confusing message

You really need to fix the underlying security certificate issue.

If your users are connecting to a server address that doesn't match the address the certificate was made for, point them to the correct address
If the certificate has expired, renew it
if the certificate was signed by an untrusted CA, then make sure you trust it.

By the error message its most likely the top one and your users are connecting to a different server address than the certificate was made for even though they both point to the same server.

Hi Thor

I believe your problem is exactly what I just solved for one of my customers the other day, I wrote a blog about it which you can read here. Outlook 2007 2010 - The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site.
