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)

Enable Anonymous access on your iis and reset iis once and then check.
