Hello weve put for the FQDN of the Default Frontend NAMESERVER but im not sure if it's ok

Because we use TMG and we use for OWA is a nat to our exchange server directly

we are receiving this error

Microsoft Exchange could not find a certificate that contains the domain name in the personal store on the local computer. Therefore, it is unable to support the STARTTLS SMTP verb for the connector Default Frontend NAMESERVER with a FQDN parameter of If the connector's FQDN is not specified, the computer's FQDN is used. Verify the connector configuration and the installed certificates to make sure that there is a certificate with a domain name for that FQDN. If this certificate exists, run Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services SMTP to make sure that the Microsoft Exchange Transport service has access to the certificate key.

What FQDN i should use ?

If is ok how to add it to the certificate

Thanks !
