-------------------------------------------------------Not with GoDaddy - but I 
have used other 'lesser' known certs.  It is
'hit or miss' using those certs.  The Thawte certs were only $179 for 2
years...  and I no longer had to add the cert authority to the devices
nor had to walk a remote end user through the whole process.  

Check out this site - specifically the Blog on Thursday May 25, 2006.
It will give you all the info needed for the process of using the
GoDaddy certs.

I think after you go through this process on or two times, you will see
the value in going with the Thawte Certs (especially if you have more
than 10 Active Sync Mobile device users)

Chris Wall

Not true.  At least not with GoDaddy and probably at least some of the 
other cheap ones (I can only personally vouch for GoDaddy, as I have a 
few of their certs - I'm not related to the company in any way other 
than being a satisfied customer for several years). 

Depends on exactly what device you're talking about, and how up to date 
your root certificates are.  GoDaddy is in MS's trusted CA list if 
you've installed the latest root certificates update from Windows Update

(I believe they were added in an update that came out in 2002 or so, 
it's been a while).  Again, https://chrisbuechler.com - using a $20/year

GoDaddy SSL cert.  Recognized in every browser I've ever tried.

If I were running a widely used ecommerce site, I'd likely get a cert 
from one of the big, expensive guys just because you can pretty much 
guarantee every device in the world is going to recognize it as a 
trusted certificate - even if your visitors' machines are grossly 
outdated. 

Cheers,
-Chris
