    Hi,

    I'm a new user of Desire. I was happy to receive the phone but there is something I can not do...
    I want to access my Exchange server with Active Sync, but I have apparently to import a certificate from my IT service on the device.
    The certificates are .cer or .p7b Is there a way to import those certificates on the Desire?
    thank you

    I run my own server with a self-created certificate. Never had to install a .cer file. The first time the phone tries to sync, it states that the certificate isn't trusted. Just accept and the message does not reappear. I guess if your company's certificate is from a trusted source, it will get installed automatically, or maybe there just one confirmation box. Have you tried to just sync?

    Hello,
    My company uses a self signed cetificate.. I dont know if this is the reason why I can not connect....

    You do have the checkbox ticked (right under the password field) which says that the server needs a coded ssl connection?

    You shouldn't get an authentication error, you should get a certificate kind of error.
