Since you've posted in the SBS zone as well, is this an SBS server? If so, what version?

Thanks Morasiva but I was looking for a different way than typing the comands.
Commented:
1.Click on the Start menu, go to Administrative Tools, and click on Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

2.Click on the name of the server in the Connections column on the left. Double-click on Server Certificates.

3.Select the certificate which you want to renew and In the Actions column on the right, click on renew.

I don't know of a way without commands but it only takes two to accomplish the renewal:

Get-ExchangeCertificate |fl

Copy thumbprint of cert to be renewed then

Get-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint PasteCopiedThumprint | New-ExchangeCertificate

That will renew the cert for an additional year.

In SBS, the fix my network wizard will renew self signed certs for you. Just run the wizard.

Yes you can do that incase of self signed certificates.
Inetmgr --> server certificates --> select the self signed certificate --> in the upper part of right hand side screen you can see renew option.
Just click that and select the CA.
This will renew the certificate.
You have to go to EMS to enable services for this certificate by running enable-exchangecertificate -thumbprint -services .

I couldn't renew it so I just removed it and created another self signed cert, then I exported it to the network, and then installed in on my workstation but outlook still is detecting the expired one. I put it in the trusted root folder.

I restarted the server and then tried to import the cert in the trusted root, enterprise trust, and trusted publisher and now it works.
