Exchange 2010: Expired Certificate Still being used

hello

I am getting error id 24 in MSExchange Web Services on my Exchange 2010 SP3 server - says certificate expired. That certificate has expired but I renewed it and imported the new one and assigned all the services (except unified messaging which we don't use) to it.

Questions:
a) am OK to delete the old certificate?
b) why is it still being used for exchange Web Services (assume autodiscover and owa) when it does not have the IIS service role added to it?

Hello OfflineGeek

No - I did it through the EMC by  clicking "Assign Services to Certificate…" under the Actions pane. Is that not a good thing?

The old certificate is displaying as having SMTP, POP and IMAP assigned but not IIS - weird.

If I remove the old one will Exchange automagically use the new one for IIS?

Thanks all. So the general feeling is just use the exchange powershell to remove the certfiicate? And nothing bad will happen...?
Yes, Exchange Shell is the best method of removing/enabling certificates.
Thanks again - removed using the exchange powershell as advised. Cheers!
