On an Exchange 2007 server, when we try to connect via IMAP, it is giving an error that the certificate is invalid.  We do have a Verisign certificate for owa which is attached to service https (obviously), but when I do an Get-ExchangeCertificate |fl  it show the intermediate cert on services IMAP, POP, SMTP with a status of 'invalid'.  See below ...

How can I either get my verisign cert to include the other 3 services, or remove and create a new intermediate cert for the 3 services without breaking the Verisign cert?

Thanks

you can use the same certificate for IMAP that is used for IIS do this
enable-exchangecertificate -thumbprint 1C45B6E89689608E93C9F86983DE1B6AD75E440C -services IMAP

thumbprint is the one which is valid

you might wanna restart the services after enabling the certificate

Some time,
we need to install the intermediate Certificate on the server's CAPI store (mmc > certmgr computer)

These were both touched on above, but here's a little more detail:

That's not an intermediate cert - its a root cert - it is self-signed (issuer and subject are the same).  You can import that to your trusted root store:
certutil -addstore root 94310AD540EB390EFC41320DFD6858ADE8AC64CE

to use your verisign cert:
enable-exchangecertificate -thumbprint 1C45B6E89689608E93C9F86983DE1B6AD75E440C -services "SMTP, IMAP, POP, IIS, UM"

Not sure which of the above "services" you are looking for, but those are the choices - remove what you don't want.

I chose to do the enable-exchangecertificate option ... question - now when I run Get-ExchangeCertificate |fl    both certs show IMAP as a service.  I assume that doesnt matter, but what if we wanted to remove it from the root cert ...
