After a lot of messing arround with certificates and domain records (MX and A records), with a lot of help from a friend who knows what all these things are, I finally got push email working using my home SBS server.

And it's great ;)

Hello Confucious

I have a friend running SBS2003 and they're interested in using push email. I've tried looking for advice on configuring what's needed but not had much luck. Most of what's available refers to configuring ISA. If you get a chance could you help by posting your firewall configuration, no need to bother about MX records as they're already accepting mail directly. Assistance with certificates would also be great.

Cheers

Unfortunatly I know nothing - my friend did the firewall / cert side of things and he said it was a real bugger to set up. He used mine as a test so he could figure out what to do as he's in the business and want's to be able to offer it as a service.

I'm sure he could set it up for your friend at a cost but it was way above my head. Sorry I can't be of much help.

He's at http://www.tegen-it.co.uk/ if you are interested.

Cheers for getting back on this. I'll do a little more digging and if I can't figure it out myself I'll pass on the details. My mate is in Battersea so not too far from Surrey. Thanks again.

I think on the firewall side it's just allowing https: (port 443 - I think). The cert side was more complicated. He got a cert from http://cert.startcom.org/ installed it on my server and created a cab and installed it on my Exec. He then manually created root certs for FreeSSL primary and Startcom intermediate on my server.

I hope this means more to you than me - I'm just regurgitating what he told me but hope it's of some help.

Good luck.

Yes, that makes sense. You can issue and install your own certificates if you have the means. If you go down this route I think also you need to application unlock the device. I have the utilitly from Orange for my C600, I'll use that for testing.

Thanks again.
