SSL Certificate Issue

Renewed an SSL Cert from GoDaddy and got it installed on the single SBS 2008 server.  Internal & OWA is working fine but a domain added laptop is getting the following prompt:

There is a problem with the proxy server's certificate.  The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name on target name.domain.com.

Outlook is unable to connect the proxy server.  (Error Code 10)

Aside from that; the iphone isn't getting email either BUT:

1.  If I add a Self Assigned CERT the Iphone gets email but then the Outlook 2010 client who is currently offsite gets the Self Assigned CERT but it doesn't match the name.
2.  If I remove the CERT nothing works obviously.

What I am trying to do is get the CA CERT from GoDaddy to be assigned to site and possibly even RPC over HTTP so this will be resolved.

I'm sure I'm missing something pretty obvious.

Please advise and thanks!

I ran this:

[PS] C:\Windows\System32>get-clientaccessserver -identity “servername” |fl

Based on this article:

This is because i’m connecting to services using the NetBIOS name of mbx1 which does not match the name on the certificate. If i run Get-ClientAccessServer -Identity mbx1 | FL i’ll see that the AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri says https://MBX1/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml, this does not match the certificate. I can also check the other services and see that i get the same results for OAB, EWS, Outlook Anywhere (OA) and Exchange Active Sync (EAS). So i need to update all theses internal url’s to match the name on the cert.

•Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity "mbx1" –AutodiscoverServiceInternalURI https://nlb.nwtraders.msft/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml 


•Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity "mbx1\EWS (Default Web Site)" –InternalUrl  https://nlb.nwtraders.msft/EWS/Exchange.asmx

•Set-OABVirtualDirectory -Identity “mbx1\OAB (Default Web Site)” -InternalURL https://nlb.nwtraders.msft/OAB 

•Enable-OutlookAnywhere -Server mbx1 -ExternalHostname “nlb.nwtraders.msft” -ClientAuthenticationMethod “NTLM”

•Set-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory -Identity “mbx1\Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync (Default Web Site)” -InternalURL https://nlb.nwtraders.msft/Microsoft-Server-Activesync 

Not sure if I am headed in the right direction.

Ok so I deleted and re added the certificate, used DigiCerts utility and it worked for the domain laptop currently offsite.  Now I just need to confirm that iphones are picking up and this is done.
