We have I SBS 2011 server and we haven't bought any certificate for that. We can get recieve mail when we are in the same intranet as the the sbs server. But are we outside the office we can't recieve mail with outlook 2010!

Its says certifcate error!

Can we turn off the certificate check in outlook or in the SBS?

I mean I can get the mail in my Ipad without no problems!

You need to get a certificate really. The self signed one isn't really designed for production use.
If your external DNS provider supports SRV records then a standard certificate can be used - you can get those for less than US$10 if you look around.

There is no way to disable the SSL check, that is what will cause Outlook to throw errors.

Our DNS provider support SRV Records, they just answer :)

US$10 is nothing. I thought it was much more expensive, I found for US$400/year!

If you search for SSL certificates then you will get VeriSign and the like, who do sell the certificates at $400 plus. A UC type (which allows the use of Autodiscover.example.com as well) can be found for less than $80/year from GoDaddy and their resellers.
Standard certificates are less.

If you do a UC type, then you need to do the certificate request and response in EMC, then enable it through SBS console.
If you are using a standard SSL certificate, then you can do it all through the SBS console.
