I have an odd issue, I host exchange services for a couple of small businesses. Everything has been working fine - even the address book isolation has been working (an article I had followed previously found here on EE - a little complicated, but it works). Anyhow, here's my problem. First consider this:
** The microsoft exchange connectivity tester says my installation passes with no errors.
So, what's happened is this.. I host exchange for a domain. We'll call it hosted.com. My exchange server is setup with a certificate. We'll call that URL mail.server.com. I've setup the DNS so that a SRV record points the _autodiscover to mail.server.com. It's been working fine, until the certificate for www.hosted.com
expired. Now outlook says that www.hosted.com
is expired or invalid, even though the web URL that outlook uses to connect has nothing to do with www.hosted.com
. The SRV record points to mail.server.com, and it works. They are just dismissing the cert warning now and still receiving email, but this is annoying.
Autodiscover tests and connectivity tests using MS's exchange connectivity tester PASS. What's going on here? Why is outlook checking the cert on www.hosted.com
instead of just being happy with my perfectly good cert on mail.server.com?
Thanks, and prompt solutions are very much appreciated!
