Exchange: Name on certificate different than FQDN of connector

hi guys

At the moment, we're having some slight problems. I am in a Exchange 2007 environment. All of our PC's use Outlook 2007/2010. We also have Macs, using Outlook 2010.

The PC's are fine, sending and receiving. None of the Macs however are able to connect to the Exchange server (i.e. in the bottom right hand corner of the Outlook, it says 'Not connected to...').

In the event viewer on Exchange, I can see:

"Microsoft Exchange could not find a certificate that contains the domain name mail.ourdomain.com in the personal store on the local computer. Therefore, it is unable to support the STARTTLS SMT...."

So I ran these commands on our Exchange server:

Get-SendConnector | fl fqdn
FQDN: Mail.ourdomain.com

Get-ExchangeCertificate | fl CertificateDomains:
CertificateDomains : {Exchange, Exchange.matches.com}

So the question here is, what would you do if you were in this position? Create another certificate and if so, what names would you associate with it?

Thanks
Yashy
