Description:
Microsoft Exchange could not find a certificate that contains the domain name remote.contoso.com.au in the personal store on the local computer. Therefore, it is unable to support the STARTTLS SMTP verb for the connector Windows SBS Internet Send LSCS02 with a FQDN parameter of remote.contoso.com.au. 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.

you've posted the same question twice I think...however one is for your local domain name and this is for your public domain name.

If this is a new setup on an SBS Server, simply run the Setup my internet address wizard on the SBS console.

If you're using the Self Signed Cert, running the fix my network wizard will fix this too.
