Exchange 2013 Self Signed Certificates


I'm hosting a few domains on my exchange server, every time I add a new domain I'm recreating the self signed certificate with the new domain, this cause the other domain users to get a message about new certificate and some of them doesn't know how to install it.

Is there another way to do this?

Two recommendations here.
1. Don't use a self signed SSL certificate.
2. Learn how to do multiple domain name Autodiscover configuration correctly.
That usually involves either SRV records or REdirect.

SRV method:

You basically configure a trusted SSL certificate with the relevant names for the primary domain, then point everything else to it.

i tried some of the ideas here, but nothing works, is there any other simple way to deal with this?

The methods outlined are the only way.
Use a trusted SSL certificate and then decide which method you are going to use for dealing with multiple names. "nothing works" doesn't really help to discover the problem. The methods do work because they are used by many people already.
