CA not seeing certificate I already installed

Running Exchange 2007 on a Windows Server 2003 machine
Installed a certificate to enable employees outside of the office to access their email, etc. using RPC over HTTPS as well as OWA.
Both are working. However, when accessing their email via OWA, they still get the certificate warning on their end. They can click on "Continue to this site..." and get in.
I took at look at the CA on the server and it was stopped. When I try to start it, I get the message that the certificate for on serverx is missing. Do you want to install it?
When I purchased the certificate from GoDaddy, I followed the instructions to install it and as far as I could tell it was successful.
Do I need to install the same certificate again here?

    This has nothing to do with the CA at all. You don't have to worry about the CA Service once the certificate has been issued.
    So, go into IIS Admin and take a look at what certificate is active on the Default Web Site. It's probably the self-signed one that Exchange 2007 does itself.

    However, remember that even if you switch to the certificate that you created and possibly installed you will find that the certificate is not trusted by any clients outside of your own domain.

    Yeah I checked IIS and the certificate that I purchased and installed from GoDaddy is there and associated with my default web site. But should the CA be running? Right now, it is stopped because there is no certificate there. Also, I'm getting the 12014 error in my evenvwr log. Are the two related?
