I am new to SBS server and would like to know how to install a certificate in my sbs server so that when I or one of my clients accesses the outlook web access they don't get this error. As of now the exchange side of things comes up as untrusted because the certificate is self signed. Any help that you may provide will be greatly appreciated

You will need to purchase a third-party SSL certificate from someone like www.godaddy.com and then install it on your SBS Server.

Hi,

If you need a free solution you can install (import) the self signed certificate to the workstation.
I think you can install a free certificate, but the best and more secure way is to purchase a certificate.

You can get a certificate for about $25-$500 per year depending of the security you need.
