OWA using self signed cert

I have a customer that just bought a blackberry, and I have other customers that use them via OWA for email. Those customers have a Cert from verisign, and use ssl for the owa site.  This latest customer uses SSL, however, it is a self-signed cert.  This isn't a problem for WM5 devices, since I can install the cert on them... but how will this effect this blackberry I want to put in place.


My understanding is that blackberry contacts my OWA, and then pushes the email it gets to the device.


not using SSL is not an option.


Will blackberry still connect to the OWA site even though the cert will show as untrusted for them?

Re: OWA using self signed cert

Regardless of whether the Cert is trusted or not. When entering the server information ensure you are using the full https:// owa address and it should work fine.
