Mystery Outlook SSL asking for installation

Hello all,

I had a popup on a users screen from Outlook 2007 requesting an SSL cert installation.
The cert was for: autodiscover.ourcompanydomain.com.

The SSL CA was jupiter.940services.com

Never heard of them.  Whois says 940services.com is registered at GoDaddy.  We do have a SSL cert from godaddy, but it's for ourserver.ourcompanydomain.com.

I denied the install of the cert.

Anyone have any ideas where this would come from?

We are using Exchange 2003.

Would seem they are linked to Twitter
If you are using 2007 or 2010 and have any social netwroking connections in OUtlook Running is possible they could have received a certificate request

Doesnt appear to be malicious, and youve done the right thing by Deny Install

Would pay to check the users account settings profile
Check that they dont have any Undesired or Non Work Related RSS Feeds, Sharepoint Lists, Internet or Published Calendars.

Also check to see if User using Mobile Device to sync to Outlook
If they are, possible it could have come from the phone
