    Default [SOLVED] Zimbra Mobile Active Sync Certificate

    I've tried exporting the certificate from FileFox that we use when I access our webmail securely, and I've managed to import it into my Windows Mobile 6.1 device.

    However, I still have to disable SSL in OTA ActiveSync or I get that nasty "SSL error".

    Is there a way for me to get the correct certificate onto my device so that I can enable SSL?

    We use self signed certificates.

    I've been dealing with this issue on and off for a few months, and could greatly use a couple of pointers....

    Thanks!

    Yea need your CA cert, and you won't get that from Firefox. I was able to get mine off my server and used openssl to export it to a different format. I copy the CA cert to my phone and import it.

    AWESOME! You pointed me in the right direction and with a little use of Google, I found what I needed. I'll post it here for anyone who would like to use it.

    1. Copy your [ZIMBRA INSTALLATION DIRECTORY]/ssl/zimbra/ca/ca.pem file to a safe location.
    2. Run this command on the file you copied, it shouldn't change the original.pem file, but it's better to be safe than sorry!
    Code:
    openssl x509 -in ca.pem -inform PEM -out MyCertificate.crt.cer -outform DER
    3. Copy the new MyCertificate.crt.cer file to your Windows Mobile device
    4. Use your Windows Mobile device's File Manager to click on the MyCertificate.crt.cer file, you should receive a message that it was imported.
    5. Enable SSL in ActiveSync on your device...

    Thanks again!
