I need to create a fake certificate on our Exchange server.  We have an SSL for our owa website setup.  I would like to also create a Server Certificate using the supplied wizard under the directory security tab.  What steps should I take to create this successfully?

Thank You.

    Go to IIS(inetmgr.msc) and select remove certificate. Then select create new certificate and in the Alias name give the name or fake website name.
    Then select change certificate to put back the old certificate.

    There is a valid certificate on the default website settings.  This is a completely new thing for me, so bear with me. :)

    The issue is we have a domain name issue: is setup with its own certificate and that is a valid certificate. is not setup with an SSL and needs to use a fake certificate.

    Both names are in the same domain.

    We have a valid ssl certificate on our server already.  I need to know how to create a new self-signed certificate and assign it for user by smpt.  I know you can install multiple certificates on a server, but not sure how to correctly.

    To generate a self-signed certificate for use by the SMTP service for a server that has the host name of Server1 and a domain of, run the following command:

    New-ExchangeCertificate -DomainName "", "server1" -Services "SMTP"
