HI!

Have an issue with remote workers running Outlook via the internet. I have just moved my customer to a new broadband supplier and setup a subdomain to redirect to the IP. I have obviously had to reissue the self signed cert on the server for the new subdomain.
Upon trying to install the cert in trusted root cert autho on the various remote machines it comes up completed but does not show up when I look in the certification. If I selected "show trusted stores" it doens't give me any option to install to anything other than in Registry or smart card when actually install the cert.

I have seen on various sites it talk about the issue with Vista and going into the registry to change permissions but it will not alow me to do this on WIndows 7 and I am not sure this is the problem

Any suggestions please!

Add the certificates (Local Computer) snap-in and then you can navigate to the trusted root store where you can import the certificate and that should sort your problem out.
