    Ok, how does the Iphone 3G work with Exchange certificates? How do I install them? How do I make them etc.? I have one for my WM phone, can I use the same one, or do my IT guys need to make a new one? (they will not like that!)

    Trying to make the switch to Iphone, but this is a deal breaker. The below is on the Apple support forum with no response.

    Also, read about the configuration utility for IT staff but cannot find that untility anywhere. Will it be available to everyone on the 11th?

    Yes, you can use the same certificate file as you used on your WM phone. Simply email the cert as an attachment to an email address that your iPhone has access to and then you just have to tap on the attachment on the iPhone. You will then be prompted if you want to install the certificate.

    Alternatively, you can put the certificate file on a web server and point safari on the iPhone to it and it will do the same exact thing.

    And do you know how to do this in a BB?

    I would assume this is handled between the BES and Exchange server if it is possible to install a certificate which i highly doubt it is. In theory the blackberry doesnt access the exchange account, it accesses the BES server which accesses the Exchange server.

    I wonder if this means we will finally be able to import SSL client certs into Safari. (Keychain) Can't access any internal servers at work since they all require PKI auth.
