Exchange 2007 - No email since adding SMTP service to SSL certificate

I recently needed to add the SMTP service to our SSL certificate for use with OCS2007.
Now none of the email is getting through the Hub Transport. All roles are on the one server (we dont have an Edge Transport Server). I rebooted the server only to find ALL services are now assigned to the SSL certificate. The self signed cert is still there with the SMPT, IIS servides applied.
The SSL cert wal already applied to the IIS sites.
Running the Exchange analyser, it initially comes up with the Hub Trnasport role installed, but then comes up saying it cant find the Hub Trnasport when checking the queues. Have I missed a step somewhere?
Without building a new Hub Transport server elsewhere, what can I do. I can remove the certificates as Exchange complains that some services will not work . (Fair enough)
Thoughts appreciated...

Did you get any 12014 error in event log?

If yes, it means the FQDN on SMTP receive connector does not match the one on the self-cert certificate.

You can try to fix it by:
1. check the FQDN on the receive connector. Make sure it is not configured to external FQDN.

2. Use the powershell command below to renew the self-cert and assign it for SMTP service.
New-ExchangeCertificate -SubjectName "CN=<server internal FQDN>" | Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services "SMTP"

No such errors whatsoever in the event log. But I'll check the FQDN. From what I remember from yesterday it DID have the FQDN (external) configured on the receive connector.
Will let you know. Thx

Well, looking at the SAN certificate, it states invalid when running the Get-ExchangeCert command.
I think I'll follow your advise to renew the self cert...

Will let you know how it pans out.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
