Is there a special cert you need for Exchange OWA and Outlook anywhere?  Anything I should think of when purchasing, or any guidelines on the type?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

To work correctly you need a UCC type - this allows multiple names, so you can include host.example.com and autodiscover.example.com.
That is it. Nothing else you need to worry about. Get the cheapest trusted one you can find (usually GoDaddy or one of their resellers). The GoDaddy certificates will work with mobile devices as well.

We pruchased a UCC (Unified Communications Certificate) certificate from GoDaddy.
 http://au.godaddy.com/ssl/ssl-certificates.aspx Check out the ideal for Microsoft Exchange Server bit. We also used the certificate for loads of other servers in our College instead of using the CA (Certificate Authority on our local domain.)

You can also get this from digicert. http://www.digicert.com/unified-communications-ssl-tls.htm?gclid=CM-ImuDQ4bkCFYdZpQodx2IA-Q Check out the unlimited server license section  covering OWA ( outlook web access )

When we got into trouble with things the 24 hour support in Australia from godaddy was very helpful.

This will give you some ideas of things to consider as you match your unique needs to what could be available. There are many more offerings out there, happy hunting.

I said to purchase through  GoDaddy, so why are you trying to get your own comment accepted as the answer?

I did not do that on purpose it was an accident, I was trying to give you the credit for the answer.
