Exchange Palm

GoDaddy SSL Certs and PalmOS

Just re-upped my cert for my exchange server to talk to my Treo 750.  I bought a 750 because the 650 broke,  Sprint said that the 750 would just replace my 650 and nothing else would change.

Well many bills later and many calls to their billing department we got the bill down to within $14 a month of what it used to be, they claimed that they didn’t offer a month to month unlimited data plan in spite of the fact that that’s what had been on my 650.  They also kept putting some form of picture sharing charge or some such thing.

But the most noticeable thing was that Veramail no longer worked with self signed SSL certs on my Exchange server.  I did everything suggested which was loading an executable to modify some registry type setting on the palm to no avail, including opening the non-SSL port which was the whole point of a cert (required for the first part of the handshake when using self-signed certs).

So I bought a GoDaddy Cert.  Problem solved for a year

This year however I found out that the new GoDaddy Class 2 certs don’t work with PalmOS.  They don’t.  Google for the reason why, I am just trying to save time.
