Microsoft Exchange 2007 Server Certificate - CN does not match passed value

I have Outlook 2003 client which connects to Exchange 2007 server via IMAP (because I could not get RPC over HTTP to work).


I have to configure the Outlook 2003 client to use SSL for SMTP - each time the Outlook 2003 Client starts it says the server is not trusted. If I configure Outlook without  SSL it says the email is relayed and denied.

I successfully import the server cert into the Outlook PC and now it says the server CN name does not match the passed value i.e in Outlook it is configured as webmail.domainname.com but in the server cert the DNS name is exchange.domain.lan .

Is ther anyway I can create another server cert for webmail.domainname.com ?

Thanks.

have you imported the certificate into the trusted root certificates store?
because that should do the trick

Hi, yup, imported the server cert into the PC trusted root cert store, then I start getting the error message that the CN name does not match.

sorry, i managed to not read the part in your OP about the cert name being exchange.domain.local

you can re-create the certificate, but you first need to delete the one you've already created. you should then be able to create a new one with the correct mail.domain.com

The problem is still unresolved. As interim solution I told users - NO OUTLOOK clients - all to use OWA :)
