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.

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

Where do i type these commands?
Do I use the CMD (command prompt)?
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I did that acutaly and I typed:

Get-ExchangeCertificate -domain "MainServer" | fl       <--- there was no return vale

Get-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint "2FB28F5075EFE9B30A8F8458DED0A137629F62D7" | New-ExchangeCertificate           <--- there was no return vale

Enable-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint "FB5AECA6B39816F 02B3245BD1D953934HD8H730F"  
<-- when i put this line it askes for service ... I put      IIS   and it is return with an error
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'.
