I'm having problems importing a security certificate into the 'Trusted Root Certification Authorities' store

I've just recently purchased a lenovo t61p notebook which comes with Vista Ultimate. At work we run an SBS 2003 Server runing Exchange 2003. We use the Outlook over Internet (RPC over HTTP) feature frequently which was running ok in the past.

The problem I'm having with 2 seperate laptops both with installations of Vista Ultimate, my lenovo, and an Asus A8S. They won't install or import the security certificate from our exchange server into the 'Trusted Root Certification Authorities' store. When going through the import process, taking both parts of manually selecting the store, and choosing the automatic selection path, it finishes successfully and says that it has imported successfully, after clicking ok, then having a look at the store, that certificate is not there.

It does allow me to import into the 'Intermediate Certification Authorities' and 'trusted publishers' store, just not the 'Trusted Root Certification Authourities' Store

The same certificate installs/imports successfully on at least 2 other Vista Ultimate installations, our home Dell 5150 box, and an Asus f3jp notebook. I have no idea why it doesn't work on these other 2. Please help, as I'm finding it hard to work without RCP over HTTP. Thanks
