Can anyone assist me with helping figure out how I can get an SSL certificate for my exchange server 2003 to user with OWA and OMA. I have an ddns name since I have a dynamic IP address from ISP. Right now I can connect to my exchange server over the internet by the following: http://ddns name/exchange
This prompts me for my user name and password and then I'm allowed to view my emails via OWA. I got a SSL from GoDaddy.com and it's failing because of the ddns name. I do have a registered domain name, but I'm lost as to how this can be setup since my IP is dynamic. I hope this make sense. Please any advice will be helpful. My external MX record points to my ddns. Let me know what I can do.

Check into paid DDNS service.  The one from dyn.com allows you to use their service for DNS hosting and you can create a Dynamin DNS record that will work for your situation.

Example:  Set your domain name servers to the ones at dyn.com then create you A and Mx records and make your A record a dynamic record ( A record will then be referenced by your MX record).

With a free service your URL host name won't match your SSL name
