We're looking for a simple certificate to replace the Self Signed one from SBS. We have 5 email domains downloaded through exchange and a couple of people who connect via VPN. Everyone has iPhones that connect through exchange.

You're receiving 5 domains worth of email, but there will only be one domain name that the server will use.  With SBS 2008, it's just easiest to use remote.domanname.com where domainname.com is the public domain name you'll want your users seeing.  

You can get a single name cert using this method:

With a single name cert, you also have to create an SRV record.  I can give you more details on that if that's the route you want to go.

You can also get a SAN cert (which I prefer though it costs a small bit more).  In this case, you get a cert that will cover multiple names - notably:

domainname.com
remote.domainname.com
autodiscover.domainname.com


The SAN cert is helpful becuase you don't have to create the SRV record.  The SRV/autodiscover record helps with several aspects of Exchange 2007 functionality (like out of office assistant).  I can help guide you through the installation of that if you choose to go with a SAN certificate.  

Personally, I get all my certificates through godaddy:
