Guide

I followed all steps with succes exept for this:

He uses a valid cert from a CA. But i use Selfsigned certs.
Using this selfsigned cert results in the following error when trying the "Test rule" button:

Is there a way to make the rule work with a Selfsigned cert ? OR is this just a warning and will it work?

This is just a test envoirment using exchange 2010, Forefront 2010 and server 2008 R2.

Yes. You should add sertificate to computer's certificate storage:

Add it to Personal storage, but also to Trusted Root Certificate Authorities

Like als315 said.

On Exchange click the certificate and select export
on TMG open MMC -> Add remove snap in -> certificates -> Local computer
and import the exchange certificate to the personal folder.

also add that certificate to the listener of the OWA publishing rule

be aware that you will need a proper certificate on a production environment
GreatVargas:
import the exchange certificate to the personal folder
For self-signed certificate it is not enough to copy it to personal folder, you should also copy it to Trusted Root CA folder.
