Outlook anywhere displaying disconnected, tried all the usual

Hi

I have a client running Outlook 2003 and connecting to Exchange 2007 using RPC over HTTP.  All the other clients are on exactly the same OS (XP), Outlook version to the latest sp and they are working fine.  We have a Public cert which is far from expiry.

As with the other users she logs in and then it simply displays as disconnected in the bottom right.  I have checked the connection status and it displays the same - disconnected.  I class myself pretty experienced in Outlook anywhere and the connectivity issues it comes with but I have tried everything.

The only clue I have to the root of the issue is when I log into her OWA the certificate warning is displaying, which it shouldn't and doesn't on anyone elses.  I am assuming I need to reset the cert store but I can't seem to find any details on this?

Thanks

Hmm,
When you access the URL https://cas-server/rpc/rpcproxy.dll...this should directly prompts for the authe. dialog-box..no cert. warnings are expected.

If you see any cert.warnings....check if all other desktops are also facing the same
If yes, we may need to install the root-CA and intermediate-root-CA @ the server
If no, check if the client machine can have the correct certificated added\configued.

now as we are getting cert warning > u will have to read it and see what its saying

if it says it has expired or some thing , or it is not trusted or name of the certifiate do not match


u could also have the public cert and have not enabled it for IIS service

once that is checked
ok log on to owa > click on the certificate warning and click view certificate >

on the certificate note the issue to and issued by name

go to details tab and there note the SAN entries

and give me the details that u get

As over a 100 users are operating fine with this setup and not this user it would suggest an issue at the client side.  Especially as if I set her account up on another PC it works fine.

Is there a way of restting the cert store on her PC?

Should we delete the users-windows-profile @ the client computer?
Then logging on fresh on this system...should pull a new set of cert. store data too?
