New Security Certificate for new OWA host record

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
After creating new (A) host records for OWA access to "mail.server.com/exchange", (formally using local or outside IP/exchange to access OWA).  Found current self assigned CA pointing  to "server.domain.local".  IIS security config verified, or so I thought.

The issue I'm having is getting mail to sync to iPhones through Exchange account after they properly authenticate without SSL on.  "Connection to server failed".  Even verified Sync ability with ActiveSync test tool. Hmmm

Also started getting OWA Red X issue on mail body when using "mail.server.com/exchange" both in and outside network.  Ran the usual workarounds, etc.  Issue remains, havent tried Hotfixes yet. OWA still works fine with "IP/exchange" both inside and outside.  

So my questions are;

Do I need to create a new self assigned CA for "mail.server.com/exchange" for iPhones and OWA even though ExchangeWeb is set to anonymous authentication?  

Can I edit or append the current Self Assigned CA?

What am I missing here?
