When I go to:

mail.ourdomain.com I get an error in Chrome saying that the server is identifying itself as exchange3 which is the actual servers name (exchange3.local.domain.com).

I've been all over the settings like a rash but can't find anything where I can change this.

thanks.

That will be on the SSL certificate. You need to look there to begin with.

Ah,

I originally created a certificate from within Exchange but looking at IIS I see what looks like a default one called exchange3.

I'm on the case...

Self signed certificates generated by Exchange shouldn't really be used in production. Put a trusted commercial certificate on the server with the relevant names and you will not get SSL prompts.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Sorted.

I created a cert from within IIS, added it, did the bindings (had a problem with the server not coming back up but removed all the https bindings and added the cert one back) and I'm sorted.

This has also fixed Outlook Anywhere so a double bonus there.

Thanks Simon

Thanks.

Would have received an A if more info about where to look, ie in IIS7 rather than Exchange.

It was ok for me as I've been through this before but had forgotten. Others may have required more info to make a complete answer.

Thanks anyway.

You shouldn't have needed to look in IIS. If you did everything in Exchange it would have bound the certificates for you correctly. If you use the SSL wizard in Exchange 2010 to enable the certificate then it will do everything for you.
