When users open Outlook they get a “Microsoft Outlook” dialog box pop up.
**********************
Allow this website to configure (users email address) server settings
https://remote.domainname.com/autodiscover/autodiscovery.xml

Your account was redirected to this website for settings
You should only allow settings from sources you know and trust

Allow or Cancel
*********************
Another dialog box pops up called “Security Alert”
The Security certificate has expired or is not yet valid


The server is reporting:
There is no valid SMTP Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificate for the FQDN of remote.nardonepridgeon.com. The existing certificate for that FQDN has expired. The continued use of that FQDN will cause mail flow problems. A new certificate that contains the FQDN of remote.nardonepridgeon.com should be installed on this server as soon as possible. You can create a new certificate by using the New-ExchangeCertificate task.

ISSUE:
When I try to create a new certificate using the "Exchange Management Shell", I get constant "Access Denied"
Basically I must be doing something wrong. Any help would be appreciated

Hello,

Are you trying to use a self signed or trusted certificate?

If you have SBS 2008, open the SBS Console> Network Tab> Connectivity sub tab

Run the Fix My Network Wizard on the right hand side.  This should repair the certificate error for you.

I did run the "Fix My Network" and it saw that the certificate had expired. It said that it renewed. Do I need to restart the Exchange services - or at least the "Transport" service.

I opened a users Outlook and it came up with no certificate errors. I had no idea how easy the fix was you provided.
Everything I read dealt with Shell Commands - which kept coming back with "Access Denied" errors

I probably did not need to do so, but I restarted the server just to make sure all is clean

Is there a way to renew the certificate before it expires? I have 2 more SBS2008 servers
I am looking into getting a 3rd party certificate.

Hello,

No need to restart any of the exchange services - The fix my network should be the only thing needed for local users.  If you have some remote users you may have to install the certificate manually on them though.

You can replace a self signed certificate with a Trusted 3rd party certificate at any time, just re-run the 'Add a Trusted Certificate Wizard'. There isn't much point in renewing a self signed certificate until it has expired really.  Just make a note on your calendar to do this.
