Problem accessing public folder properties in exchange 2003

I have a server running exchange 2003. I am trying to change permissions on a public calendar.
But when I go into ESM and then right click on public folders and go to properties, I get the following error:
The SSL certificate server name is incorrect
ID no: c103b404

Initially the name on the SSL cert was domain.co.uk
-I guess this is not tight, but Im not sure what the cert should read, I have tried creating serveral SSL certs - using local FQDN, public FQDN but the same error persists.

As an additional note, we dont actually have a valid public FQDN for the server - because we send all mail through a smarthost (ISP) and we receive all mail through a pop connector, so there is actually no part of the server that is public facing.

Could someone advise?

already followed that article.
The part I dont understand, is what the FQDN is - is that the public address, ie mail.domain.co.uk for example?

It will be servername.internaldomain.local or similar, but basically your internal domain name added to your servername.
