  • Exchange Certificare Issue (Urgent)


    I installed Certificate Authority on My HUBCAS Server , And created a new certificate for exchange , which is working fine on HUBCAS m I can see any warning message !

    But when i try this certificate on client machine , it shows me on General Tab
    "Windows doesnt have enough information to verify this information" and on certification Path , in Certification status.

    "The Issue of this certificate couldnt be found"

    I m using windows 2008 & Exchange 2007

    My question is if certificate is working on HUB/CAS(Same server where i installed CA) then it should work on client too

    Waiting for your replies

    I take it since you has a CA then you are using your own self signed certificate?

    Does the client trust the root CA certificate?

      If you want urgent - call Microsoft.

      Why are you trying to use an internal CA? If the server is Internet facing then you really should be using a commercial certificate. An internal CA is only an option where you have complete control over 100% of the clients. If you want to use TLS for secure SMTP delivery with third party senders then you need a commercial certificate.

      You can purchase a commercial certificate for less than $80, so spending lots of time trying to get an internal CA to work for just Exchange is simply a waste of time in my opinion.
