My old exchange 2007 email server crashed and I reinstalled the active directory and exchange. But when  I tried to install the old SSL from third party CA certificate in the CAL role it is installed successfully but when I connect to the server using HTTPS it is taking the default certificate coming with exchange.  Is it possible for me to deploy the old SSL in the new server. How can I troubleshoot.

If the new server has the same name as the old one then there shouldn't be a problem.

I found a handy little utility for managing Exchange 2007 certificates, check out my blog post here: http://demazter.wordpress.com/2010/06/15/exchange-2007-ssl-certificates/

Have you tried the utility you can do it all there.

Otherwise to that goto start > run > MMC
Add/remove snapping select certificates > local computer.

Under personal store you will find your existing certificate.  Simply right click and select delete.

But the utility I linked to will do all this for you.
