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

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 - mail.abc.com? 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.
