"get-exchangecertificate | fl" will show you detailed info about each certificate.   You may have more than one, but which ones say "Status: Valid" ?

The process would depend on a few factors.....

Is the Exchange part of an Small Business Server set up?

Is this a self issued certificate or a certificate from Certificate Authority?

Where did you buy the previous certificate from?  I've used GoDaddy in the past. What you want is a UCC certificate. Don't try to renew the certificate you have. It's better to just install the new one.  GoDaddy has a step-by-step tutorial on their website:

view the certificate > if it says "certificate is valid" then it is

if you have an SBS server, open the SbS  console, click on network tab > click connectivity tab > click "fix my network" > any expired/expiring soon certs will flag up and allow you to issue a self signed certificate through a simple wizard.

I think that's the only thing that sbs console is any good for.

where should I view the cert in console

Eric CIT Director / Project ManagerCommented:
Log into one of the mailboxes using exchange web access (OWA). In the browser you can click the URL icon to view the certificate. That will show you which one is being used.

is there any way I can check I can check cert snap in

Eric CIT Director / Project ManagerCommented:
The certificate snap-in will show you all certificates.

If you have access to the Exchange Management Console you can click on 'Server Configuration' and at the bottom, look at 'Exchange Certificates'. The one in use will have a green check mark next to it.
