    Question iPhone iCal behavior with expired SSL certs?

    Does iCal break when your "real" SSL cert expires? I want/need to access my personal Zimbra calendars from my own non-work server via iPhone's iCal which is too stupid to work with self-signed certs:
    Apple - Support - Discussions - Getting error (Unexpected secure name ...

    In other words, when it expires, I hope the iCal on my iPhone still allows me to view my calendar without much fuss. I suppose I can set this up myself as a test but it's not that ultra urgent so I'd rather harness the power of the collective Zimbra hive mind.

    Wait nevermind... I didn't know about the trick to first accept the self-signed cert with Safari:

    CalDAV with Leopard iCal - Zimbra :: Wiki

    ...though, I need to verify this with the Safari and iCal on the iPhone. I hope this works so I don't have to pay for a "real" SSL cert.

    Hmm another piece of the puzzle that I had no idea about. This makes it sound like you can get away with self-signed certs after all. I figure I'll note this in case someone else goes down the same path:

    IPhone - Zimbra :: Wiki

    Note: The iPhone prefers non-selfsigned SSL connections. If you have a self signed certificate, then it would be a good idea to install the iPhone Configuration Utility to deply a self signed certificate on the iPhone: Apple - Support - iPhone - Enterprise
