I'm evaluating KMS as a replacement for CommunigatePro and was wondering if anyone has been able to get syncing or SSL to work with the Treo 700P using Versamail.

I'm running KMS 6.3.0 patch 2 on OS X 10.4.8 server and I have an SSL certificate which uses an intermediate certificate. SSL works fine on the LAN and outside.

Add to this Palm's Treo 700P (Verizon) running Versamail, and I can't connect using SSL. The device doesn't have a certificate library of its own, thus preventing the addition of a trusted root certificate. KMS doesn't have any trouble with my existing certificate when connecting with a browser on a computer, but it kicks down an error message with the Treo.

Short of paying a couple of hundred bucks for a certificate with a better pedigree, how can I get SSL working?

Kerio's online literature indicates support for the 700P, but darn if I can get it to work. Buying another certificate in order to make this one feature work blows a big hole in Kerio's claim that syncing with 6.3 is built in with no other products to buy.

kerio ms works fine with our palm 700p users over ssl. we use a geotrust issued certificate as well as a third-party email client (chatteremail).

the problem isn't with kerio... it's with your device and how you have it configured which can be easily resolved.

I'm pretty sure that the problem is your certificate, not the handhelds. I purchased one that uses an intermediate cert and I had tons of problems. I spoke with a Kerio Tech Rep and they said that KMS doesn't not support certs that use intermediates. We now use one that was issued by Thawte (purchased from a partner, not Thawte directly) which cost about $60.00 for two years.

That being said, I haven't had any problems with connecting our 2 700p users to the KMS on our domain with ssl (using VersaMail).

Hope this helps.
