Firstly, HELP!!

Right, Ive just moved from exchange 2003 which was working just fine to 2007.
Its taken me a good 3 days to figure out i needed IPV6 enabled to actually install the damn thing but now Im trying to sync my PDA.
All im getting back is a message saying "The security certificate on the server is not valid. Contact your Exchange Server administrator or ISP to install a valid certificate on the server."
Having looked though the crazy new IIS on server 2008 (i moved from 2003 at the same time) Im still no wiser as to where exactilly i find said certificate.

Truth be told im a nerdy student whos got Server 2008 and Exchange 2007 via my University so i cant aford to pay 100's to get a company to make me a cert, so how exactilly do i get my PDA to sync and be happy?

Any and all help welcome.

I am not sure but I think you really need a real cert to this work, if you could not get one as you said you could try to import the Exchange cert in you PDA.

I dont know if you can do that in you PDA but try to navigate from your PDA brawser to an https://exchange and when the browser complains about the invalid certificate it should have an option to import it.

Try do that with IE in your computer and import the certificate the processes should be the same in the PDA if the PDA can import it.

Ive tried to copy certs from everywhere onto my PDA, its imported and installed a few but Ive no idea which one exchange is trying to use.
Ive gone to the OWA page put it just asks if i want to continue past the cert rather than import it.
I cant see why you'd need a paid for one.  Is there no way i can create one myself and simply tell the PDA to trust it as outlook itself works.
