Should I delete expired SSL certificates

We have a client that has a server installed in 2006. They have numerous SSL certificates that were used for Outlook Web Access and such. They are expired. Should I delete them. Would there be any potential problems leaving them on the server?

Even expired certificate is better than no-certificate. Therefore, I would only delete those old certificates which have newer version available. Reason: you will have a list of certificates which were previously used on that server, so you can renew them (if you will ever need them).

Of course, you can always add a new certificate when you need it, but those old certificates don't hurt untill you install a new one (and then you can delete the old one).
