    Client certificate import for corporate Exchange

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to configure my corporate Exchange account in my Xoom. I got the procedure to do so for Android from our IT staff, and it is as "simple" as configuring typical parameters in Mail client (username, server, SSL, server URL, etc.) but of course xoom don't let me save config because when it tries to test the config it fails with "wrong user/pass", and that is true, because the server will reject the connection if a client certificate is not fed to the server. Anyway, the mail config app does not ask for a certificate at any point.

    I assume that it is because it is "smart" and try to use one from honeycomb certificate repository. And here comes the problem: I got the .pfx cert from my corp that needs to be imported somehow to the Android. The only way to import certificates i know is going to Settings->Location and security->(Credentials storage)Installation from USB
    Well, I don't have a cable to get a USB host port on my xoom. I've tried copying the .pfx file to the Xoom filesystem, but I don't know what to do with it from there.

    I've tried with another mail client (not touchdown, that andmarket says its not compatible with xoom) that lets you choose the cert, but only from the repository, so I'm at the same point, I neet to import the cert to the Android repository first.

    So, anyone knows a way of importing certs without usb host cable on the Xoom? or any mail app that lets you choose the cert to use from filesystem or something?

    Update: I found Touchdown for tablet, and it does let me import cert from file succesfully. Now trying to configure things up... first attempts failed... I'll update

    I just went through a week of this with my co-workers Atrix.

    We were using Microsoft Exchange 2007.

    The server was still at Service Pack 0.

    I had to convince our IT guy to update the server.
    He went as far as SP1 (he tried SP2 but it broke the Blackberries and iPhones that were already working),

    Finally I was able to get it working after the update.

    So save yourself the trouble, make sure the Exchange Server is up to date, otherwise you'll be banging your head against a wall.

    Well now I got IT working like a charm using native client, and without configuring the certificates manually. There was just a server policy, so if your corp Id is not enabled for pushmail you can't get access. Now I managed to get my user activated and everything works!
