I wonder if any of you have experience with Windows 7, Outlook 2010, as for the life of me I cannot get it to accept a certificate from out linux mail server (SME Server)
Problem is this server was called "05.companyname.local", instead of "mail.companyname.com"  so the cert name is wrong.
DNS points to mail.companyname.com
 Changing the name of the server is not something I would take on lightly, only because I have never tried it, or for that matter familiar enough with it.

I have googled like mad, but not found anything specific that stated how to make this work, certificate is installed but still get this error:-

The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website address.

Which is fair enough as it is. But is there a way round this? Would purchasing a certificate help? I assumed it would not as the domain was set to domain.local so could not use a wildcard one? Really confused by this, at least Firefox allowed me to force it and work well with Thunderbird. Sadly I need it to work with Outlook due to my accounts software.

Thanks

Hi,

if the certificate has a specified server name in it, that can't be changed. Only option is, if you have to reuse the cert, to change the DNS name of the server.

If the cert is self-signed (i.e. created by that server not a official CA) then the easiest solution is to recreate the cert with the correct names on it.

here is a how-to for apache based systems http://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials/392099-creating-self-signed-ssl-certificates-for-apache-on-linux
