Hundreeds and thousands of Schannel events generated on Exchange 2007

Guys, thousands schannel errors makes my event log look ugly.
Here is what I get:

Log Name:      System
Source:        Schannel
Date:          31/05/2013 16:50:19
Event ID:      36888
Task Category: None
Level:         Error
Keywords:      
User:          SYSTEM
Computer:      EXCHANGE.xxx.co.uk
Description:
The following fatal alert was generated: 10. The internal error state is 10.
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
  <System>
    <Provider Name="Schannel" Guid="{1F678132-5938-4686-9FDC-C8FF68F15C85}" />
    <EventID>36888</EventID>

  </System>
  <EventData>
    <Data Name="AlertDesc">10</Data>
    <Data Name="ErrorState">10</Data>
  </EventData>
</Event>

Any ideas how can I find out what is it and how to get rid of it ?

Thanks

Yes, however we are talking about server here, so I'm not sure if your suggestion applies.

It is connected with SSL certificates.
It could be that there is a problem with one of the certificates or someone is having a go at your system.

You can stop the entries I believe, read this thread on Technet Forums:

This thread at Technet also goes over the common causes.

I hate just handing out threads elsewhere, but as this is a common problem but without a single answer, it is the best way forward  so you can see what others have tried.

Simon.
