SBS 2003 & TLS Configuration

I have been tasked with configuring our SBS 2003 server to work with an encrypted host. The question I have seem simple. I am required to configure the server to use TLS.

DO I need a seperated CA for inbound & Outbound and Web, or is the one CA used for every function?

Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
SBS 2003 cannot do opportunist TLS, it is either on or off.
Therefore you will need a separate host name for TLS traffic, which will require its own SSL certificate. That could also mean a separate external IP address - it depends on whether the other side can send to an alternative port.
You will also have to create a separate SMTP virtual server for inbound email and an additional SMTP connector for outbound email.

If you were on something a little more modern then this would be trivial to setup - but SBS 2003 is more complex.
