you can a free third party CA, http://startssl.com

or you can install the certificate on each client machine  to avoid the warning msg.

A cheap certificate from www.godaddy.com or similar will cost you around $50 per year, you install it once and forget about it for a year or 3. Considering the time saved in not having to install a certificate on every client or get a self signed certificate to work it'll pay for itself in no time.

I messed around with self signed certificates on one SBS installation (the first) having since used 3rd party trusted certificates I'll never do so again. It's just not worth the time.

I would suggest going with startssl since it is a trusted third party and it is free for certificates which dont have muliple SANs

Assuming that you have Active Directory, you can build your own CA and then generate a certificate for your Exchange and OWA.  Then using GPO, push the root CA Cert to all clients.
