Hi experts,

for connection of mobile devices to an Exchange server I'm using self signed certificates to get ActiveSync connection.
That does work fine on iPhones and Windows Phone 7 smartphones (root cert an site cert)

When trying to import the same certificate files on an Android based phone (here : Samsung GT-I9100) I cannot install them.
I have moved the files on several paths on the phone (root, usbstorage, sdcard root).

But always when trying to import via "Settings"/"Location and Security"/"Install from USB storage" I get the error message "No certificate file found on SD card".
Using the file explorer on the device I can "see" the files, executing them gives "no application can execute ...".

Am I using the wrong cert file format (although in several forums it's recommended to use .pfx files) ?
Am I placing the files into the wrong folder ?

Thanks in advance for help.
