Al,

I am not looking to bypass the whole logon and get a cert installed. I want it 
so my clients can install the cert on their machines; some may have use 
notebooks when they are on the go and use their home computers when they are 
back from being on the go, while others may just want to use their home 
computers.

I just want to make it available for them to install it on whatever machine 
they choose, the last thing I want them doing is installing the cert on some 
internet café machine, or a another persons or company machine that doesn't 
belong to them, in the case when using OWA with SSL.

The other issue with automating certs is that RPC over HTTP does not prompt a 
user for verification of the cert, it automatically assumes the user has the 
cert already installed and if it doesn't they simply do not get access to their 
email... period. 

Andrew

Sounds like you're saying exactly what I wrote.  You want to bypass the
whole logon and get a cert installed on the local machine step by automating
it so you can avoid using a trusted cert from a third-party vendor.  

What am I missing with that?

No I am not saying that. 

I am saying, if I want to get some joe access to RPC over HTTP over the net
for $10 per month say, I want to be able to easily get him to install the
cert on his local machine which sits in his house or office and setup his
outlook 2k3 so he can RPC over HTTP into my box and get his email.

Some background?  

Where do you want to install the cert? 

Are you saying that this is a cert you created (that would be why the logon
to https://webserver/certsrv ) and you want to install it in the trusted
store on the local machine without user intervention?  Or something else?

Does anyone know of away to build a page which will send a cert to a client
and give them instructions on how to setup outlook 2003 for RPC over HTTP? I
can do the instructions and security part I just need to know how I would
setup the "install CA" part without having them login into /certsrv and
complicate things. :)

Thanks
Andrew
