try these commands:

1. to get the thumbprint type: Get-ExchangeCertificate -domain "servername" | fl
2. thumbprint in step 1 enter in step 3.
3. type: Get-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint "2FB28F5075EFE9B30A8F8458DED0A137629F62D7" | New-ExchangeCertificate
4. you'll confirm "overwrite existing default SMTP certificate, take the new thumbprint and enter in step 5
5. Enable-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint "FB5AECA6B39816F 02B3245BD1D953934HD8H730F" -services IIS

It's not necessary or desirable to do this through the exchange shell on SBS2008.  Go to SBS Console > Network > Connectivity  and run the 'Add a Trusted Certificate Wizard'.

You don't have to buy a certificate, you can, for example, get a free one from Startcom.

Otherwise, Godaddy are reasonably priced (if a little bit of a suspect business with a horrifically garish site and marketing).  The full process is step-by-stepped here.

Also check out all of these links (this is quite a common question on EE).

Any more questions just post em back here.  Good Luck.
