Exchange 2010 - Self signed certificates - OWA - Smart phones

Posted on 2011-10-10
Last Modified: 2012-07-02
Has anyone been able to configure ISA 2006, Exchange Server 2010 and self-signed certificates to work with smart phones? My client refuses to buy a certificate and insists on using a self-signed one. I am able to use that certificate in Exchange 2010 and exported it to the ISA 2006 server. I can get to no problems. I receive a Certificate Error message becuse the certificate is untrusted but OWA works regardless. On my droid I can get most of the way through the setup but receive an error for the untrusted certificate and if I select ignore my connection fails. The client insists that it is a redirect issue because he cannot enter /owa into his smart phone.  Has anyone successfully got this to work and if so how?

thank you in advance

    Self signed certificates are a nightmare.

    It is not supported for Outlook Anywhere and ActiveSync is a pain, unless you start installing the cert.
    If you have an internal WIndows CA, generate a cert that way and import the cert to the phone.

    When you get a cert for less than $100, it is not worth the hassle.
