The CertPrincipalName element specifies the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate principal name that is required to connect to the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 organization by using SSL.
The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.
Contains the specifications for connecting a client to the computer that is running Exchange 2007 that has the Client Access server role installed.
If the CertPrincipalName element is not specified, the default is set to msstd:SERVER, where SERVER is the value that is specified in the Server (POX) element. For example, if SERVER is specified as example.com and CertPrincipalName is left blank with SSL (POX) turned on, the default value of CertPrincipalName would be msstd:example.com.
If none is specified, Windows will validate the certificate principal name according to information found in the Principal Names topic on MSDN.
