For installing certificate on your exchange 2010 server first you will need to create a certificate request from exchange management console itself and then contact any certificate provider like GoDaddy or Verysign to provide you a certificate. You can also find many links on EE for the same and detailed process.

If you buy an SSL certificate - GoDaddy (or a GoDaddy Reseller Account) are about the cheapest.

Make sure you include the following names in the certificate (SAN / UCC certificate - not a single name one):

mail.domain.com (or whatever you choose to use)
autodiscover.domain.com
internalservername.internaldomain.local
internalservrname

That should be all you need to get up and running without having to change Exchange to make things work.

you can run the below command in the Exchange management shell(modify the command according to your organization needs)
from exchange you will have to genrate a request file by using a command like below
w-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -SubjectName "c=ES, o=Diversión de Bicicleta, cn=mail1. DiversiondeBicicleta.com" -DomainName woodgrove.com, example.com -PrivateKeyExportable $true > c:\cert.txt

once this is done we have to give the contents of the txt file to a CA like digicert or go daddy to get the certificate
