Hello Experts,

I installed an certificate on my exchange 2007 running on a SBS2008.
I allready assigned the cert to my services (IMAP, IIS, POP an SMTP).

Now, when a client is going to open Outlook a error shows up:

The Name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site
The cert has been allready installed to the clients workstation but after reopening the outlook, the message shows up again.

Thanky for your help in advance.
