Execute this commands in the shell to convert the certificate:

Convert CER (.crt .der) to PEM

openssl x509 -inform der -in “MYCERT.cer” -out “MYCERT.pem”

Convert PEM to DER

openssl x509 -outform der -in “MYCERT.pem” -out “MYCERT.der”

Copy and install the certificate with the extension .der to the mobile.

Download the software “Mail For Exchange” to synchronize the mobile with the exchange server.
