Hi,
We have bought thrid party ssl certificate to run Ipad and for external clients to run pop3/or imap4 for sbs 2011 & exchange 2010. we have installed godaddy ssl certificate as mail.mydoamin.co.uk, we had already got another ssl certificate called remote.mydomain.co.uk now firstly when i check the connectivity for activesync on www.testexchangeconnectivity.com, it tested ok (mail.mydomain.co.uk) with no error but still the ipad is not working, it says "unable to verify the account information". ?
secondly can i remove remote.mydomain.co.uk issued by sbs2011 CA? (from the exchange certificates and assign smtp,pop,imap,iis service to the third party ssl certificate??)

Does your SSL certificate work in OWA from Internet Explorer? Does OWA work on the iPad in Safari?

If you have installed the purchased SSL certificate then you shouldn't need the self generated one. Did you buy a SAN SSL cert?

You should be fine to remove the old certificate if the new one has been installed.

You can assign the services before you delete, if you assign the services to the new one you don't need to delete the old certificate it will just sit there doing nothing. I would suggest that over the delete.

Correct, once you do that the new trusted cert will be used instead of the self generated one. Assuming all the values are correct on the new cert then all should go well. I would run the same exchangeconnectivity test you did before once you make the change as well as OWA and the iPad connection.
