Hi Experts,
I have renewed a certificate but still have this message:

"The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site"

It seems that you are using a certificate for a local address MAIL01.xxxxxxx.local.

When you open the properties of the certificate what is the SAN name?
Are using the same certificate for the internal and external connections?

You could issue the following cmdlet in EMS to get the certificates list:
Get-ExchangeCertificate | FL

Open in new window

 You should also check the URL for the internal and external AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory.

By the way what is the exchange version?

Let us know.

Also make sure you have re-assigned the exchange services to the new certificate within Exchange (depending on Exchange version this can be done in GUI or MS)

You must see the certificate properties on the error message.
When you open the certificate, the SAN names is written on the first properties window.

To issue the cmdlet you must open the Exchange Management Shell and issue the command posted above.

how to check the autodiscover function ?
David Paris VicenteSystems and Comunications  Administrator Commented:
Open Outlook.
In your down right corner, you will see and Outlook Icon, execute ctrl + right click in your mouse on top of the Icon.
Choose to test email Autoconfiguration, insert your email address , your password and check the Use Autodiscover, un-select  the other options.

Hit test and show us your result.

You need to change the configuration of Exchange to use the external host name internally.
This is because you can no longer have internal names on a public trusted SSL certificate.
This is easily done. http://semb.ee/hostnames2007

Basically setup a split DNS system so the external name resolves internally, then change all of the host names to match.
