Security Alert in OutlookI have a Windows 7 workstation PC which is connected to SBS2011/Exchange 2010. I installed Office 2010 Professional/Outlook 2010 on this computer. All is fine except from time to time this "Security Alert" windows pops up while using Outlook. I clicked [View Certificate] button to install the certificate, but that did not addressed it.
"Remote.Domain_Name.com" in the popup window is a part of Remote Workplace (RWW) url "Https://remote.Domain_Name.com/remote".
Can you help?

Your best option is to buy a certificate - particularly if you are using RWW and OWA from outside of the office. The self signed certificate isn't really designed for production use.
A suitable certificate can be as little as $20, although for maximum compatibility use a UC type, which can be found for $70/year.

We have 15 users who use Outlook 2010 on the same network and equal number of smartphones and iPad. There is no problem connecting to the exchange server from the rest of the computers or smart phones.

The self signed certificate created by Exchange isn't supported for use with ActiveSync, so my answer still stands - buy a trusted certificate. Trying to use the self signed one is a false economy and requires the users to ignore SSL prompts.
