Oh I see. :)

You have to make sure that your sites cert matches your sites internet
name. So for instances if your mail site is mail.adrianssite.com you
certs Netbios name must be mail.adrianssite.com. You should have a look
for the ISA 2004 Exchange Kit.zip on ISAserver.org to help you
understand how SSL has to be configured, if you don't use ISA that's
okay, just look at the SSL configuration part.

My suggestion about moving Exchange still stands.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I misinformed you.

The two questions were somewhat independent of one another.

We do not use SBS- we have two Win2K3 servers, both DC's, one of which
hosts Exchange 2K3.

The SBS question was more for general info about how SBS gets around the
issues reported when exchange is hosted on a DC.

Cheers,
Adrian
