Is anyone out there?
i am here the certificate guy :)

Go to Exchange management shell and run the below command

New-ExchangeCertificate -SubjectName "c=US, o=Woodgrove Bank, cn=mail1.woodgrovebank.com" -DomainName mail1.woodgrovebank.com, woodgrovebank.com, example.com, autodiscover.domain.com -PrivateKeyExportable $true

<change the above command and put the urls used by ur users , if ur not sure give me the OWA url, internal domain name, external domain name and i would give u the exact command>

after u do this run
Enable-exchangecertificate -services "iis,smtp.pop.imap" -thumbprint <put the thunbprint u get from the previous command>

@ praveenkumare_sp :

info is as follows....


OWA - webmail.landtecservices.com
internal - landtecservices.local
external - landtecservices.com
The command is

New-ExchangeCertificate -SubjectName "c=US, o=Landtec Services, cn=webmail.landtecservices.com" -DomainName webmail.landtecservices.com, landtecservices.local
, landtecservices.com, autodiscover.landtecservices.com,FQDN -PrivateKeyExportable $true

Please replace the FQDN  with your exchange server's Fully qualified Domain Name


after u do this run
Enable-exchangecertificate -services "iis,smtp.pop.imap" -thumbprint <put the thunbprint u get from the previous command>

So, when I go to enable the cert with: Enable-exchangecertificate -services "iis,smtp.pop.imap" -thumbprint <put the thunbprint u get from the previous command>  it does not work.

I wound up running the above listed command on the old cert to try and renew it. I deleted the new cert. I am back at square one. I am getting the same warning when opening outlook.
