Our SSL certificate recently expired and was renewed but Outlook 2010 Clients are still getting SSL errors. We use Exchange 2010. We use DNS to point to our external certificate and have the following in place to cater for that:

Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity CAS_Server_Name -AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri https://mail.contoso.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity "CAS_Server_Name\EWS (Default Web Site)" -InternalUrl https://mail.contoso.com/ews/exchange.asmx

Our Outlook Web Access is getting the correct certificate and it seems to be only affecting our internal clients. When I run the Get-exchangeservercertificate command the correct certificates are in place. The old certificate is not visible anywhere yet I still get the error. I have even checked the registry and also under MMC but cannot find the reference point for the old certificate anywhere. Can anyone help?

I've got this one error but this does not make sense.

Log Name:      Application
Source:        MSExchangeTransport
Date:          05/03/2014 16:04:22
Event ID:      12023
Task Category: TransportService
Level:         Warning
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      V-EXCHCAS1.sea-cadets.org
Description:
Microsoft Exchange could not load the certificate with thumbprint of CF414B5D61320B56C88AADCEB8FD5CDEF52F75CC from the personal store on the local computer. This certificate was configured for authentication with other Exchange servers. Mail flow to other Exchange servers could be affected by this error. If the certificate with this thumbprint still exists in the personal store, run Enable-ExchangeCertificate CF414B5D61320B56C88AADCEB8FD5CDEF52F75CC -Services SMTP to resolve the issue. If the certificate does not exist in the personal store, restore it from backup by using the Import-ExchangeCertificate cmdlet, or create a new certificate for the FQDN or the server enabled for SMTP by running the following command: New-ExchangeCertificate -DomainName serverfqdn -Services SMTP. Meanwhile, the certificate with thumbprint A799EBE84C069ED91755EB73FDE9AF4FF92A3689 is being used.

This certificate is not one on the list when executing GET-EXCHANGECERTIFICATE | FL. The above is our old certificate.

I have tried to assign the certificate to services which asked to overwrite the old certificate but I still get the certificate errors.

Thank you very much. Using the article I was able to identify that we had two cas servers on DNS for the same certificate address and the second CAS server although it had the correct certificate, was not assigned in IIS. After setting this and rebooting all is well.

This resolved our issue over DNS and hence installing the correct Certificates on all other Servers.

However, I also required another KB article:

support.microsoft.com/kb/940726

This completed the fix.
