I placed a godaddy turbo SSL into my IIS6 and it was working fine until today when the active sync with OWA and Phones stopped working.

I get a certificate warning that my certificate is not from a trusted Source

Security Wqarning

There are problems with the security certificate for this site

This Certificate is not from a trusted authority

Continue View cancel

It is on a server 2003 with exchange in IIS6

I cannot get email on the phones or on the web


any Ideas?

Check to see if GoDaddy's certificate is still in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store.

Start, run, mmc, add/remove snap in, certificates, ok, trusted root certification authorities folder

how old is  the cert
self signed?
how did you get it on the phone if not trusted?
do you have a CA - certificate auth in your network
what about the CRL - cert revocation list

Can you explain a little more about what you mean when you say your domain name is incorrect?

What did you do a nslookup on?

Could this be an issue with your firewall?  Possibly a NAT policy or ACL was inadvertently changed?  

Can you access the site from the same subnet/VLAN that the server resides on?  

If you aren't using host headers in IIS can you access the site by private IP or Public IP?

I assume you've done this but I have to ask if you have tried doing a start, run, iisreset

I have not changed any NAT or ACL

No I cannot access the site internally

I have restarted IIS

what is strange is that the cert error i am getting is from the main website

When i  check the ssl on the net it says no ssl is available

Thanks guys, all of your answers led to the solution.

It was not until the last ans by McSween did I realize that the OWA site itself was down, so I recreated the site from the web file of my owa website and BAM! it fired right up no worries.

Not sure how that happened as there are 0 errors for that in event viewer

Thanx again folks
