hey mate, according to he output, that certificate is showing as expired [3/20/2011], you should get a new one to replace it

I understand that, what I don't understand is the DATEINVALID status. Other expired certs show a status of INVALID. I would like to know the difference. Thanks.

a status code of DATEINVALID literally means either the certifcate has expired or the date on the machine is past the certificate date

a status code of INVALID can be for other reasons also, an example would be the certificate chain cannot be validated or is not trusted

Ok, I understand, thank you. This brings up another question. There are 5 certs on my hub transport. Only 2 of them have a status of valid. One lists IMAP, POP and IIS after Services and the other lists IMAP, POP and SMTP.

Does this mean I can delete the other 3? Since they are invalid, they are no doing anything, correct?

some certificates can still be utilised by services even though expired/invalid
if there are no complaints/issues around these invalid certificates, it doesnt hurt to keep them
normally when considering a tidyup, i would tend to export uneeded certificates and then remove
that way there is a backup copy for reference later on if required
cheers
