SSL for OWA

Hi,
   I am trying to set up SSL for OWA by creating my own certificate. I created the certificate and installed it and enabled exchange to use encryption. But I get a "page cannot be displayed". I then deleted the certificated and created a new one with a different FQDN and now the certificate keeps getting issued to Administrator. I have tried it a couple of time and no matter what Common Name I put in, it just gets issued to Administrator.

In short:
I first issued the certificate to servername.domain.com
but I was accessing the server using mail.domain.com (so I thought that might be the problem for "page not found")
so I deleted the certificate and reissued it to mail.domain.com but now the certificate keeps getting issued to Administrator.

How are you trying to issue a certificate?
Personally I don't bother with home grown certificates, when you can get SSL certificates for US$20 from GoDaddy and not have to worry about SSL certificate errors.
