Outlook Web Access Certificate Error

We have a Windows 2003 server which has Exchange, IIS, Outlook Web Access, now all work but the fact that when going to the Outlook Web Access. If i go to https://mail.ourdomain.com/exchange I get a Certificate Error, if I ignore the warning i get the Outlook Web Access login form and everything works.

No some bright spark installed a faulty home grown certificate before I started and we are now planning to buy a VeriSign certificate.

I have tried the test install from VeriSign and still having issues.

I removed the previous certificate and installed the new one using IIS, not sure if i have done this right though as I am getting the following error:

VeriSign Trial Secure Server Test Root CA
  VeriSign Trial Secure Server Test CA

I get the following message for VeriSign Trial Secure Server Test Root CA:

    This CA Root certificate is not trusted because it is not in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store.

The VeriSign Trial Secure Server Test CA and mail.ourdomain.com both say:

    This certificate is OK.

Could someone please shed some light on this and let me know what I am missing or doing wrong or possibly how to remove the certificate again properly and reinstall this VeriSign Test CA correctly.

Any help would be much appreciated, NewAS.

I am pretty sure that the root for the Verisign test certificates is not in the browser, so you will get this error message.
If you want a trial certificate that will not generate the warning, then get one from RapidSSL (Geotrust). Their certificates are cheaper than Verisign as well.

We went for a Thwate SSL Web Certificate tagged to our domain and it worked straight away. It also sorted out our PDA's as well.
