Does anyone have a translation of following microsoft article into something someone not proficient in exchange can follow?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940726

Outlook on all the internal clients is complaining about the certificate everytime it connects on every client.

Have you tried to accept/install the certificate?

Do you have a commercial SSL certificate on the server? If not then that can cause problems.
Switching to a commercial certificate will resolve a lot of issues, and can be done for less than $60/year.

I would suggest dropping the self signed certificate for a commercial one. It will cause you a lot less headache.

Thanks for that but the main issue is I don't know what to do with them in the first place.  The MS article link at the beginning of the question I think answers it but it's to high a level for me to follow meaningfully.

If you can point me at a step by step guide I'd be a happy man :)

I don't understand what you are asking.
A commercial certificate doesn't require installing on each client, that is the point. They trust the certificate already. The same way that your browser trusts the certificate at Amazon, Ebay and your bank.

My problem is that even if I bought a new certificate I can't follow the instructions on the Microsoft kb article mentioned at the top.  I'd not know what to do with it.  I'm an Exchange 2007 virgin bewildered by console commands I'm afraid.

I cannot help you with the purchase, because that is different for everyone.
I have guides on doing the SSL certificate on Exchange 2007 here:

That includes the steps required for SBS 2008 installation.
