I realize that a lot has been mentioned on this topic, but I didn't see anyone mentioning the IIS manager as a part of the solution to their Exchange sync issues, so thought I would pass this along.
I am using Win SBS 2003 and Exchange 2003.
I kept getting the date/time error trying to sync to my self-issued certificate exchange server. Turns out my default web site certificate was not issued to my FQDN, but to my local server instead.
I found that I had to go to the IIS manager, select properties for my Default web site, go to the Directory Security Tab, and launch the "web server certificate wizard" by clicking the "Server Certificate" tab.
I discovered that in setting up the SSL certificate for my default web server that I had used my local server name instead of the FQDN. Using the wizard, I was able to make a back up copy of my current cerificate, remove the current certificate, and then create a new certificate with the FQDN (<domain name>.com) rather than my local server name (<server>.<domain>.local).
Then when I made sure I had the root certificate loaded onto my phone (not the one I just created, but the one from the Certification Authority application in SBS), the thing synced right up and has been working great (gets contacts, calendar, and email).
I can do this since I am running a small network in my home office, and have only two users, so it's not a big deal for me to change the certificate.
