Switching from Self-Signed to A Trusted CA Certificate

Can someone point me to instructions on how to change from using a self-signed certificate on GroupWise Mobility Service 2014 R2 to a trusted CA certificate? I would like to set this up so that users can use the Outlook 2013 or 2016 client if they wish to. Thank you.

So my response to rbarber's comment is...

Have you checked the admin guide? Starts on page 94

Wow that is buried deeper than I thought

Some of those Active Sync clients sure do get picky about the certs.

We did this last winter with digicert certificates. Came off without a hitch. No one knew it happened. Dsapp made it simple.

Re: Switching from Self-Signed to A Trusted CA Certificate

Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it. Thanks to Stevo for the link in the manual, that was very helpful. Andy was right, that information is hidden pretty deep down within the manual. Also, thanks to raronson for sharing your actual experience in replacing the self-signed with a CA certificate. I will put replacing my certificate on my to do list and I will let you know how it went after I get it done. Thanks again!
