Hey all...Was hoping someone could give me some insight in this...This isnt a 
sole exchange issue as it affects my overall default website - but I figured 
someone might be able to give me some ideas of where to start

I run a SBS 2003 server here at home just for my family to colaborate - it is 
using a .local domain but is setup for routing and therefor is hooked directly 
to the firewall embedded router.  I do have a domain pointing directly to it 
using using a dynamic dns service to be able to access OWA and whatnot and it 
is working this respect I couldnt be happier.  

Unfortunately we do have a single powermac running tiger...what a pain it was 
just getting Entourage working with the Exchange.  Mac's apparently have issues 
with the .local domain conflicting with DNS as it doesnt see it as an actual 
domain - I did fix this setting the dns for it statically.  

The issue I am having has to do with the CA Cert since it is setup for the .net 
domain  Because the Mac is trying to sync up with exchange using the .local 
domain, it errors when it tries to validate the cert initially.  It will sync 
up with exchange as soon as I click okay, but I'm wondering if anyone has found 
a way around this?  I dont suppose its possible to install a 2nd cert (one for 
.local?)  Outside it works fine as I did install the cert to the keychain, but 
it is frustrating having to click 2-3 times just to get exchange to pop up.

Thanks in advance,
