SBS 2003 and Certificates

    I have been running my SBS 2003 without certificates. It doesn't appear to
    functionally be an issue other than when I use OWA and get a message stating
    that there is no certificate or the fact that I have to turn off certificate
    checking on my smartphone.



    My question is, is this a security problem? If so, can I generate a
    certificate on the server from SBS or do I have to buy a third party
    certificate?



    What is the upside of running certificates and what is the downside (such as
    increased complexity)?



    Thanks in advance,



    Brad

  2. The internet wizard can create a certificate for you, smartphone won't
    except that certificate, you will need to disable unless you purchase a
    certificate on the smartphone trust list.

    Thanks, Moishe.

    Why is there a difference in certificates?

    What type of certificate should I purchase?

  4. Pocket PCs and smartphones were only programmed to trust a handful of
    certificates, I know entrust.net is one of them.
