Probably made a mistake on one of these steps so far.
Intention was to renew the server certificate on Exchnage Server 2010.
I renewed the exchange certificate in Exchange Management Console.
Error message in OWA is 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
I read that the certificate has to be imported.
Opened this MMC - Certificates(Local Computer) - so the MMC is connected to the Exchange Server.
Copied the renewed certificate in Personal\Certificate to the folder Trusted Root Certification Authorities\Certificates folder.
I left the old version of the certificate there for now....

Still getting the 403 error. Tried restarting the web service.

I enabled it as you suggest, but I thought this wasn't necessary, since it was already a certificate and only had to be renewed.
I also restarted IIS after re-copying the cert from the computer's personal certs into the trust root certs.
(again, I am not sure on these steps, so it is possible that copying it from one certificate folder to another isn't necessary)
