Add a Trusted Certificate errors out

Greetings!

I have broke my server certificates.  I have not been able to receive emails from computer which are not part of the domain.  Its been a while and I would like to finally get this resolved. I am able to recieve emails outside of my network if I have added a computer to my domain.

So I did some research and found the problem to be my certificate.  So I went into my mmc.exe/add-in --> certificate ---> and in my drunken brave moment started deleting all of the certificates I created in the past trying to resolve this problem.  After doing this I went to removed my current resigned my certificate with Godaddy.  And attempted to reissue the certificate within the console... After this I wanted to install the certificate and went to Windows SBS Console, Clicked on Add a trusted Certificate and BAM!!!  I GET THIS ERROR MESSAGE.

Tim, I found your exact error message located here.
http://qa.social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/smallbusinessserver/thread/631880ec-d14c-4b8c-8490-b0df98017209
This site also mentions the deletion of found blank certificates. However from your post I'm assuming if any existed they were deleted.

Hi David,

I have found the same article.  I ran the wizard and it stated there were errors.  It didn't resolve the problem.

What I did find when going to the connectivity tab is my Web Server Certificate "STATUS" windows says "request submitted" which is correct as I submit the license with godaddy last night.  Part of the resubmittal was creating a new .req on the server and then giving this information to godaddy.  I forget what that txt thing is called...

The error message from the wizard says: Cannot install the certificate authority.  Install the certificate authority manually, and then try again.  I am googling this right now...  But maybe I'm going in the wrong direction

The problem with this is when I follow step 4.  I don't see my certificate in the list.  I'm hopelessly lost.. Thanks though

Thanks David for at least trying to help me.   In the end I had to completely uninstall CA Authority and reinstall it.   The "Add a trusted Certificate" Finally opened.  I used this website to remove and reinstall:

I'm giving you some points because you spent some of your time to help resolve.
