Cannot install Certificate on Windows Mobile

Hello everyone, I am new here.
I want to install a KMS certificate on my Windows Mobile Pocket PC with WM5 MSFP (T-Mobile MDA Vario).
After export the standard certificate, I renamed the extension to .cer and copy them to my mobile.
If I double click the certificate on my moblie, I got the message: no access to the certificate.
For testing I istalled an other certificate successfully, so my mobile seems to be OK.
For this I compared the two certificates (KMS and the other one) in a text editor. They looks different.
The KMS certificate is in plain text but unreadable and ahve a
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
and -----END CERTIFICATE-----.
The other one which will work have a lot of special and unprintable caracters and no begin/end vertificate chapter.
So I guess the Kerio certificate have the wrong format for importing in WM5.
Does anybody now to install a valid KMS certificate on WM5?

P.S. searching in this forum was unsuccessful for me.


Thank you for your help.

The mobile device requires an SSL certificate in DER format. The certificates used by KMS are in PEM format (text in base64 encoding). To install the certificate to the device, the certificate has to be converted from PEM to DER. OR just download the certificate in correct format from the KMS webinterface: http://server/server.cer.

BTW: Are you sure you did read the manual carefully?

Thank You Pavel for your quick response.
Yes, this would be the point of failure, the wrong certificate format. When I get back to my server I would try your hint about to download from the KMS webinterface. this would be later this day.

Yes, I read the manual carefully but not completly, only the chapters which are intersted at this point. But I will read it at all. The wrong format case I did not found in it.

I try to use KMS as a Push Mail Server for my Mobile Phone and in runs very well but without SSL encryption. So far so well.
In case of failure to download and install the certificate over webinterface, can you tell me a way to converted a certificate from PEM to DER?

Many thanks and all the best from Germany

On the most devices (pocketphones like the qtek 9100, MDA, etc) you also have to unlock the handset and allow the installation of SSL Certificates. The link in the manual from Kerio can't by found at www.htceurope.com, but instead of that:

Copy this link in your browser:

http://www.europe.htc.com/support/faq.html?id=510&cat=se ttings

On that page there is a file which you have to copy to your device and run it on your device. When you do this, you don't have to regedit on your device. After that you browse on your device to https://<yourmailserver>/server.cer and read the rest of your manual for setting up your account.

This worked for my devices (qtek 9100, hp6915).
