Certificate error logging in to Outlook

Hi

When logging in to Outlook I get a certificate error of my SBS server name.

I have installed a GoDaddy trusted cert but this is purely for the mail.domain.co.uk name.  I did some research on  this and spoke to GoDaddy and they said a single name cert would be fine.

Thanks

Great article from Sembee on how to configure exchange using single name certificate.
Check this article and verify if your server is configured correctly. It applies to exchange 2010 as well.

If you provide the exact screenshot of the error then it we can tell you where exactly you have to check the settings.

Hi

Is this the same for SBS though?  Does SBS not do a lot of this for you?

Yes, If you run the wizards correctly while doing sbs setup or implemented the certificate using the sbs wizards then it will configure almost of this automatically for you.
If not then you will have to configure the url's manually for exchange as suggested in the article.

SBS does almost everything for you. BUT if you didn't use the SBS wizard to generate the certificate request hen you may have generated a certificate differently than what SBS expects. You shouldn't pick and choose which SBS wizards you run. You need to run all of them.

For example, you say your certificate is mail.domain.co.uk, but the default name in the internet address wizard is remote.(domain), not mail. So unless you actively changed the default in THAT wizard, you will get a certificate error.

can i not simply re-run a wizard?

the cert was requested and installed via the wizard.

I'd rerun the internet address wizard then run the DBS certificate wizard (NOT the exchange certificate wizard!) ...with the new CSR you can request a free rekey from godaddy.

Shouldn't need to get a rekey.
As long as you run the wizard and configure it to use your custom name, choosing mail instead of remote, the add trusted SSL wizard should let you choose an existing SSL certificate. No need to create a new request through SBS.
