Have wrecked OWA SSL on Exchange 2007 - Certificate problem

Hi all,

Having a knightmare with a 2008 server, in my attempts to try and get various Autodiscover/RPC issues fixed something changed and a couple of clients inside the network started to get autodiscover certificate errors saying the name on the certificate was invalid.  I've since logged on to OWA externally and I'm getting a certificate error as well saying "The certificate was not issued by a trusted authority" even though it is a UCC multi-domain GoDaddy certificate.  So I think I've managed to do something wrong with the certificate being used by OWA and Autodiscover.  I've gone into ESW and typed get-exchange certificate and got the following back:

19AB70EE2E4046A7B4725408C0DC832F9780E517  ...WS      CN=remote.domain.CO.UK
01236CDAAA070508368F9CD8590E75962BD9604E  IP..S      CN=owa.domain.co.uk, OU=Domain Control Validated, O=owa.s-domain.co.uk
BACFEA951F15377FD37924BE6D222252AFA7392B  .....      C=UK, S=shire, L=don, O=company, OU=IT, CN=owa.domain.co.uk
A7685EF4F7217F14050C8A712FC9E0478F1F1055  ....S      CN=remote.domain.CO.UK
6EAB45E4F154F85D80B00FD0AF616462B08A7D3B  ....S      CN=remote.domain.CO.UK
3125E1144085E4EB2EC09CD55586EF2BAE1F2CF0  ....S      CN=SERVER.domain.local
4EDDE5C2C3C42BF23345ED0F1D741E0E5C4EC3F3  ....S      CN=Sites
C2551C26BCAA30B3B6181005FEC118694B0F3DB3  .....      CN=domain-SERVER-CA
9EF59648147547251196342C12AF45196605B4C5  .....      CN=WMSvc-WIN-SER9SCTHZ40

I should point out that the thumbprint of the godaddy certificate is the one ending in 604E.  The URL I want to use for OWA is owa.domain.co.uk I included remote.domain.co.uk as a SAN in the GoDaddy certificate as I wanted to use that as the URL for VPN in the future.  Accessing remote.domain and owa.domain however both end up in the same certificate error.

I've checked the certificate when trying to access OWA and it looks like it's the wrong one.

Can anyone please tell me how to fix this?

Many thanks in advance
