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.
