I do have a valid certificate issue by RapidSSL, I have followed the instructions to install it to my exchange and to IIS, I have used the RapidSSl tester to verify the cert is installed.  The cert is to mail.dixiedigital.com.  All the pointers in exchange (that I can find, under Management Console > Server Configuration > Client Access > Right click each one, set external URL to https://mail.domain.com/[the thing that supposed to be here]) are set correctly I think.  

Not sure what to do, I have googled it, but most issues revolve around the certificate being self-signed.  I don't know where to go to find my issue from here.
