I have an Exchange 2007 server used for OWA and Activesync.  The certificate expires in less than a month.  I have experience applying certificates in Exchange 2010.  Do you need a UC Certificate for Exchange 2007 or is that just for Exchange 2010?  Also is it just as easy as Exchange 2010 to apply a certificate as it is in Exchange 2007?

If you have UC running on Exchange 2007 you need to renew the certificate also.
