How to Configure Enforced TLS on Exchange 2007

Posted on 2012-04-12
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
My goal is to configure an Exchange 2007 environment to exchange domain-secured e-mail with our partner. I assume the following high-level approach is best practice:

1.Generate a certificate request for TLS certificates.
2.Import the certificate to my mail server.
3.Configure outbound domain security.
4.Configure inbound domain security.
5.Test mail flow.

I am not sure how to perform each step and hoping there is a more straight forward method to accomplish my objective. Is there a way to configure Enforce TLS without using cmdlets? Is a TLS certificate absolutely required? Once again, what is the simple approach to accomplish this configuration.  Is there a step-by-step guide available in the form of a KB or whitepaper?

Thank you
