Wow, all those steps....The Droid and iphone were set up in under a minute...
why don't you use a 3rdparty ssl certificate. You would save lot of time looking into this kind of issues.

@mboppe  Why should I have to? Every other phone works fine with it???
It makes life easy for administering and MS recomendation is to use 3rdparty SSL certificates for exchange.
You have to convince your MGMT to spend money to buy this certificates.otherwise every nw device that you buy you have to manually install the certificate.

What about OWA and outlook anywhere don't you guys use it.

OWA didnt work. I set up a pop3 account on the phones and mailed the .cer and installed and it worked. I didnt have to do all those steps like shreedhar recommended

@mbppe I am not worried about that. After these two phones, management will never buy one of these crappy Windows phones again. We just ordered 7 droids...
