  • Exchange Pushmail and SSL

    I was trying to find a tutorial that helps you configure SSL connection with phones that want to get push mail off the exchange, but to no avail.

    I was wondering if you guys recommend a 3rd party cert publisher for a more reliable compatibility with the various phones (mainly Nokia's E71 and the Kaiser)

    So basically i kindly ask for the following assistance:

    1) referal to a good tutorial on how to configure xch 2k3 to only allow SSL push mai lconnections

    2) a recommendation for a decent cert publisher.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a setup guide here: http://www.amset.info/exchange/mobile-setup.asp
    For certificate providers I usually use GoDaddy. https://certificatesforexchange.com/
    However I cannot remember if the Nokia devices support the GoDaddy certificates natively.

      Simon,

      Thank you for the quick response.
      I know how to essentially setup pushmail.
      What i wanted help with is the SSL configuration in IIS (Im really weak in IIS so i kind of wanted a step by step instructions on how to implement it)

      Thankl you.

        All of the providers have instructions on how to do the certificate request and process the response on their web site. The only thing to take care with is the common name - which should be host.example.com - not example.com, no /anything or https, just the FQDN.
