Enable WP7 to connect to exchange server,even if it is a certificate mismatch
Please give device encryption so that I can atleast check my corporate emails. Having smart phone that too costly one and not able to do basic thing is sometimes frustrating. That Cheap Android can do it, why not great WIndows Phone?

Dear MS folks, it is a such an enormous pain to see that a MS phone can't be connected to MSOutlook, while those BB junkies are immediately accessing official emails.
Please do something about it.
We all know that it's not a hardware issue, so we must must get this this problem fixed. You must not depress the MS loyalists !!
Look forward to WP 7.8. T
I have tried every possible solution proposed to this nagging problem but to no avail. Microsoft, please follow the paths of android/i-phone on this issue. Help us connect to the exchange server even if there is a certificate mismatch.I really wish I had purchased an android instead of my WP7!!
I hade the same problem. But then have i installed the root certificate of my (self)zertification server on the wp and now it works fine.
This is a crazy situation.. every other device I have iPhone, Android even symbian is able to access our exchange server.. but a Microsoft phone not.. the setup of an exchange account MUST be able to ignore a self signed or expired certificate like other platforms do.. If I can't get this resolved I'm going to have to return the device as faulty.. because the setup of an exchange account on Mango clearly is. It's a real shame because other than this one killer issue for me, I love Windows Phone!

I feel ashamed that my boss will be able to connect his Android phone to our Exchange server but if I want to connect my Windows Phone we'd have to spend a lot of money on a cert. Does that make any sense at all? Small companies can't afford certs just for their email server. Small companies can manage the fact that the phones will complain on the first connection.
How it is possible that an i-phone can be synced with a microsoft Exchange server and the Windows phone cannot??????? I believe that this should be taken under deep consideration and must be fixed ASAP.
This would make a lot of small Exchange customers very happy ;)
