I have an Exchange 2007 installation that's part of my SBS 2008 Premium server. I occassionally get the Event ID 12014 error message in the application log (I copied the error message in its entirety below). All facets of Exchange are working properly as far as I can see and have been since the server was installed a few months ago. I suspect the issue that I have is that my SSL certificate is for remote.myworkplace.com (applicable setup for SBS) while my server announces itself over SMTP to external resources as myserver.mydomain.com. I suspect this is the root of my issue. I'm not concerned since everything is working (I understand this could possibly impact http over rcp which I don't currently use at the given site). Should I be concerend over this error message? Should I resolve or let it be?

Event ID: 12014
Task Category: TransportService
Microsoft Exchange couldn't find a certificate that contains the domain name myserver.mydomain.com in the personal store on the local computer. Therefore, it is unable to support the STARTTLS SMTP verb for the connector Outbound with a FQDN parameter of myserver.mydomain.com. If the connector's FQDN is not specified, the computer's FQDN is used. Verify the connector configuration and the installed certificates to make sure that there is a certificate with a domain name for that FQDN. If this certificate exists, run Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services SMTP to make sure that the Microsoft Exchange Transport service has access to the certificate key.
