4. Goto "Console" > Add Remove Snap-In
5. Click "Add" > "Certificates" > "Add" > "Computer Account" > "Local Computer" > Finish
6. Expand the Console Root > Personal > Certificates
7. You will see your certificate listed there
8. Right Click on your certificate > All Task > Export
9. Export Private Key, you will have to enter a password to password protect the Private Key
10. Specify a path and file name you want to export the certificate to
11. Click Finish to complete

Then from 2010 Box, do the same thing, but import.

You can follow this link to install 2010 certificate:  http://www.digicert.com/ssl-certificate-installation-microsoft-exchange-2010.htm

There are some tweaks depending on what kind of certificate you are using.

Also be prepared, b/c users may start getting invalid certificate warnings when using Outlook.  There are other articles to address this issue.
