connecting IPHONE to EXCHANGE SERVER event id 3005 occurs

I have setting up Iphones to connect to Exchange on a SBS2003 server
the exchange as worked with blackberrys for  some years and owa outlook works fine
I have notices that when seting up the IPHONE you get a certificate failure and event id 3005 occurs

one item I wonder about is the certificate as "-" in the domain name
the email domain name is companysiteservices.co.uk the certifiacte has  it as company-site-service.co.uk

could this be the problem ,if so can we create a new one  or alter the current

or is this not the problem at all

anyone got comments

The name of your certificate must be the same that your FQDN to access your server. This is the purpose of a certificate. Validate that you are who you say.

companysiteservices.co.uk  <>  company-site-service.co.uk

You can buy a new certificate at godaddy.com very cheap (I think USD$50) and install it in your server.
Look at the next link with the full process to get the cert working with IIS6.

I use a self signed cert with my sbs2003 server, you can create it in wizard configure Internet and Email and then you can install it in Iphone with Iphone configuration utility. Here two links.

I suggest to update Iphone software, and with the past links I made a little changes, but and the end everything works ok.
