SSL Cert issue for Exchange 2010

We installed our new SSL Cert today for our Exchange 2010 as our old one is up tomorrow. My question is once the new one is installed is it then activated? We want to make sure users getting their email from their smartphone are working off the new certificate. According to GoDaddy once it is installed and running in the console it should be active.

Did you install the new SSL certificate using EMC?

Hit the OWA web site from a web browser and check if it using the new SSL certificate.

We  are able to go to the OWA site but how can we tell if it is the new SSL cert?
We did use the link below to install it earlier.

It is needed to be assigned to exchange services not only installed.  Open exchange managment console, go to server node then assign the new certificate to exchange services.

Yes... if you want to confirm, open OWA from the browser, then click on the certificate to view it. check if it is the valid certificate or not (expiry date will help here).

Nothing is coming with that attachment. I found where the certs are listed under the browser and I am seeing a lot but nothing that is showing a name or expiration date of anything close to this time next year.

Sorry, I got what you were saying now. So it is showing the new cert but it is showing a valid date starting tomorrow. Is that just for record and it is using the new one now?

Suliman Abu KharroubIT Consultant Commented:
This could cause some issues for today, but tomorrow everything will work well. as the certificate says" it is valid from tomorrow".

Some pop-up messages may open for outlook users.

had you notice a warrining message in the browser while browsing  owa ? is the address bar red or normal ?

We installed it early this morning and did not have any issues such has pop-up messages and there is not a warning message in the browser or a red bar. So it is working off the new cert and it should be fine even tomorrow since it is okay now?

Suliman Abu KharroubIT Consultant Commented:
Yes it should work find tomorrow... if any issues, restart exchange services in CAS server.
