Hi there,

I am going to purchase a ssl certificate for outlook anywhere and owa but i don't know if i need a SAN or Wildcard one.  

We got "DOMAIN" as the domain pre-windows 2000 and " longname.org " as description one. ( see attached ).

Will a wildcard certificate (  *.longname.org  ) work fine ?
just want to make sure that outlook will work fine internally and externally without errors.

a wildcard should do, but if you want to be sure, why not create your own using xca (with a self-created CA), test it out by importing the self issued CA certificate into the trusting pc or device, and trying different combos - you never know, if you don't need any third parties to trust it, you may have just saved yourself several hundred $$$ on a commercial cert :)

SAN would be ok for your requirement.

Thank you for your comments.

Just realized that certificate on the old exchange server is still valid for 2 more years and its a wildcard one, I believe moving it to the new server should do it, isn't?

what are you recommendations to move the certificate ?
should i just export it into pfx and import it into the new server via EMC ??

Doesn't cost you anything to try it,  so why not?  :)
