GoDaddy SSL Certificate For Exchange 2003?

Hello,

GoDaddy had a deal today on standard SSL certificates for $12.99 a year so I bought one for a couple of years. I was hoping that I could use this SSL certificate for exchange 2003 running on a small business server 2003 to allow me to use Activesync as well as possibly outlook over RPC (the latter not being as important as activesync).

Will a standard SSL cert allow me to do this? I know with exchange 2010 I needed a UCC certificate.

And if this will allow me to do this how can I import the certificate from GoDaddy? The procedure I read seems to be to go to IIS and under the default website go to the directory security tab and selecting "Server Certificate" which brings up a certificate wizard. However, under this wizard I can not replace the current certificate, I can only remove the one I have.

Help would be greatly apprecaited, thanks.

Yes a standard SSL cert will work happily for Exchange 2003.

To get one working for it though, you will need to remove the current cert as you have described above, then once removed, go to the Server Certificate button again to generate a new request.  Make sure you use 2048-bit encryption.

Once you have the cert request, copy the contents into the GoDaddy website in the relevant field and request the cert.

Once you have the cert approved and downloaded, re-visit the Server Certificate button and process the request, point to the certificate file and install the certificate.
