Having trouble setting up an ssl certificate on our mailserver

I recently setup SmarterMail 11.1 on a pc running windows 7 pro.  Unencrypted pop & smtp work fine but I want to secure communications so I purchased an ssl certificate.

 I found a program called SSL Tools that I used to import the certificate into the windows certificate store (I let windows decide where to store the certificate).  When I use the tool to verify the certificate it says there was no certificate found.

I followed the SmarterMail help file and went into settings:bindings:ports and setup ports 465,993 & 995 pointing each one to the certificate file, but nothing seems to work.

I have seen references to a web server but we're not using one, this is for a mail server only.

Could it be that we are using windows 7 pro and not windows server? (We only have 30 users so a server os didn't seem necessary)

I don't have a copy to play with, but the procedure at http://portal.smartertools.com/KB/a240/configure-ssl-tls-to-secure-smartermail.aspx seems clear enough?
