    or does not match the name of the site

    is a message i now get when i open up outlook. We use rackspace for hosted exchange. We have windows 2008 SBS. I have a feeling this happened when i started messing around with remote services to try and get a VPN going. Anyone have an idea how i can resolve this? I've attached a screenshot of the message.

    you have to make sure the full domain name is exactly the same as the domain name in the certificate. You need the subdomain listed explicitly unless you have a wildcard SSL certificate which covers any subdomain of the original domain

    the name in the picture is actually the name of my server (not our domain name) but with .org instead of .local. i know i was messing around with stuff that I should not have been.

    when you click on the view certificate button on the warning, what name is shown in the certificate. Does it match the server name exactly. If not you will get that warning

    when i click view certification i see issued to remote.domain.com

    and then issued by theasf-asf-nyc-dc01-ca which is not our domain name.

    I went to the servers IIS manager and I saw that certificate and i removed it. I thought that would fix this but it did not.

    I think you need to ask your IT support now what to do. If you are IT support then you need to contact rackspace & ask them
