Microsoft Exchange could not find a certificate that contains the domain name.....

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
hi guys

this morning, none of the Macs on our systems were able to connect to our Exchange. However, all of the PC's are fine and still are able to send/receive emails.

I went into the logs on the Exchange server and saw:

"Microsoft Exchange could not find a certificate that contains the domain name mail.contoso.com in the personal store on the local computer....."

I looked at our certificate and it doesn't expire until 2016. I enabled the thumbprint of the certificate for SMTP also.

Yet still, this error is coming up and Macs still can't connect.

Any ideas? Should I recreate a new certificate?
