there is a problem with the proxy server's certificate

I'm getting the same error but mine is error code 8.  Mine started showing up after we edited our zone files and directed our emails to a hosted spam filtering server.  I tried the solution above, but that didn't work.

First thing to check is thr certificate for the proxy server.
Log into the proxy via https (eg webmail if available) and note the certificate and any warnings u get.

Let us know any warnings u get and also note the address you use ti access it vs the address the certificate is registered for (amend the domain name for privacy before posting)

When you redirected the mail to hosted spam service why records did you change?

Is it the one wing used fr RPC/HTtPS?

If so, my advice would be to change that A record back, create a new A record (with a different name) and point that to the hosted SPAM service, then configure your MX record to use the new A record you just created.

> When you see the cert. on the CAS server
notice the "Certificate issued to" value

> On the CAS server properties....third tab "External Host name" should match the value as per the above "Certificate issued to" value

Else...we would end-up in the error.

The other option is to use the "CertprincipalName" for the organization to match the same value as per the "Certificate issued to" one.

Would getting a third party CA get rid of this error?  right now Exchange is using a self signed certificate

I added the selfsigned exchange certificate to the local trusted root certificate, now the error message is gone, but the server wants me to authenticate to it every time i start outlook.  This only happens when in cached exchanged mode.  Everything works fine when not using cache mode.
