    Hi All,

    I am really loosing it, I can’t find a solution for a problem on my own server.

    At my own office I have an SBS 2003 R2 SP2 with all MS updates.
    All wizzards have run and I have bought a certificate for SSL which works fine.
    OWA works fine, Outlook clients work fine, Outlook clients running RPC over HTTPS work fine.

    I just bought a Windows Mobile 6 PDA with Wifi and GPRS and I am trying to sync it with Exchange, but I keep getting error 0X85010014 on my device.

    I have read many articles about this, all tips didn’t work for me.

    I have checked all security and SSL settings on the virtual directories, they are all fine.

    I have re-created the exchange-oma virtual directory, including the registry entries.

    I can access [url]https://fqdn/exchange[/url] and [url]https://fqdn/oma[/url] on the PDA without certificate messages, that works.

    When I disable the SSL option on the PDA and sync with the internal server name through wifi, it works perfectly.
    But we want SSL …

    What on earth can I do ?

    Thank you, but this was not applicable in my case unfortunately.
    My Default Web Site does not have “Require SSL” and I don’t get those messages in the events.

    Try UTFW and putting your certificate in there.

    I have put my bought certificate in my PDA, even though I can browse to Outlook Web Access with the PDA without certificate warnings, and that didn’t help either.

    Thanks, but still not solved :-(

    Re: Syncing a WM 6 device with Exchange 2003 over GPRS or Wifi

    It’s solved.

    My webmail runs on https://webmail.mydomain.com/exchange.
    My certificate is made for webmail.mydomain.com.
    My PDA connects to webmail.mydomain.com.
    This should work of course.

    But, just in case somebody connects to http://webmail.mydomain.com, forgetting the s in https, I have an extra virtual directory in IIS with a host header record webmail.mydomain.com, which reconnects to https://webmail.mydomain.com/exchange.
    The result is, i somebody visits http://webmail.mydomain.com, they are redirected to the proper https site.
    After removing that, the PDA started syncing.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Huh?
    I told you if you had run the wizard (UTFW) for internet connection, it would have done that for you!!
    But thanks for posting back with the “solution” :)

    I have to disappoint you, I ran the wizzard, more than once, and it didn’t solve it for me, I had to solve it manually.

    Well, I have to disappoint you and tell you that your server is a bit screwed up. Running CEICW on a good server produces automatic redirection from http: to https:

    I have just tried to do the same with 2 other out of the box installs and they do exactly the same.
    One you have created a separate website with hostheader record webmail.domain.com for only port 80, it stays there and it blocks PDA syncs, even after running the wizzards again.

    So, what you say can not be right.

    Re: Syncing a WM 6 device with Exchange 2003 over GPRS or Wifi

    But why are you creating a separate web-site with a host header? Use the main server site as http:///exchange and you will be automatically redirected to https:///exchange – OOB.

    It is when you deviate from the standard you create problems. You also can’t have 2 SSL sites on the one IP address, even with host headers.

    Dear Teiger, I realy do appreciate your help, don’t get me wrong, but please read what I typed.

    I quote myself :
    But, just in case somebody connects to http://webmail.mydomain.com, forgetting the s in https, I have an extra virtual directory in IIS with a host header record webmail.mydomain.com, which reconnects to https://webmail.mydomain.com/exchange.
    The result is, i somebody visits http://webmail.mydomain.com, they are redirected to the proper https site.

    That is why I created that website.

    I don’t use 2 SSL sites, it can be done in IIS with a wild certificate though, but I am not trying that.
    The second website is http over port 80, read my text again please.
