Hi all,

 Hope you can assist me or point me in the right direction...

I read about this everywhere, but I can't find a solution that works for me. The problem is that I get the old "The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site." error when you open Outlook. When you press "YES" to proceed then the error does not appear during the use of Outlook "It does come back though when you close Outlook and re-open.

My certificates looks O.K:

Also - the AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri name does match the name on the security certificate, in this case they are both server.domain.co.za.

Please - any help in the right direction would be appreciated.
