    The five commands shown in the article are:
    Get-SendConnector | fl fqdn

    Open in new window

    Then check the names on your certificate:
    Get-ExchangeCertificate | fl CertificateDomains

    Open in new window

    Enable the SMTP Service for the Installed Certificate
    Get-ExchangeCertificate | fl thumbprint, services

    Open in new window

    Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint 87E2548BDB32D8E40D8CF552199156F3C117DCAB -Services IMAP, POP, IIS, SMTP

    Open in new window

    Use an SSL Certificate that is not Expired
    Get-ExchangeCertificate | fl thumbprint, status, notafter

    Open in new window

    Hi iQasmi,

    When typing "get-exchangecertificate | fl certificatedomains"; I can't find the fdqn of the sendconnector. That means I have to create new certifcate with the fdqn - Does this also mean to renew the current certificate? Please show how to create a new one with appropriate fdqn?

    thanks in advance...

    Are you using a self-generated cert or have you purchased a cert?

    Easiest way to generate the correct certificate request is this:

    -      Open EMC -> Server Configuration
    -      Make sure your Hub Transport server is selected and on the ‘Actions’ pane click on New Exchange Certificate
    -      Type in a Friendly Name (for your own reference) and click on Next
    -      Select all the options that you want need. Specifically the SMTP/IMAP options and probably CAS -> Mutual TLS
    -      Select next and make sure that your CertificateDoamins is now listed as one of the selections
    -      Follow the steps on to either created a local signed certificate or send the request to external third party for approval.

    ** If you current cert is UCC, you can probably just revoke and rekey with the new CSR. If it’s single name cert, then you’ll have to purchase a UCC.
