previously we have requested a wildcard ssl certificate from godaddy for our major domain. one of the reasons was the new established exchange server 2010. usually you require following names included in certificiate:
- FQDN (e.g. mail.whatever.com)
- Hostname (mail)
- Domain name (whatever.com)
- MX Record
with the wildcard certificate these are all covered (except of the local hostname). During creation/importing of the ssl certificate into exchange 2010, exchange first asks, if a wildcard certificate is used and then encounters an error -> due to the certificate is a wildcard certificate and not a certificate especially generated for the FQDN, SSL for POP and IMAP can not be provided.
couldn't find any workaround or solution for this on google, so I hope, maybe some one here has an answer or solution for me! :)
the exchange 2010 is running on a windows server 2008 R2 enterprise.
thanks in advance and best regards, sise
