I login as administrator account on the server, i tried the link you provided but still the same issue..

i hope that my question is clear to you, my issue is on the Exchange Folder under the Default Web Site.

on the other hand, On the Default Web Site properties there is no issue, Server Certificate is enabled on Directory Security Tab.

This is where you need to install the certificate. You can't go on installing different certs for each folders inside the default web site. certs are a per site thing.

No, certificate needs to be only applied at the default web site level.
