Exchange 2007: Event ID 12016, There is no valid SMTP TLS certificate

Hi Experts

Application EventID 12016 from MSExchangeTransport on SBS 2008

There is no valid SMTP Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificate for the FQDN of SERVER.domain.local. 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 SERVER.domain.local should be installed on this server as soon as possible. You can create a new certificate by using the New-ExchangeCertificate task.

I assume this is related to SSL cert which I replaced recently using a paid 3rd party certificate. I used the SBS Wizard to replace the cert. I did not add server.domain.local  to the names in the cert when created

Is there a way to fix this error?

You need 2 certificates. one 3rd party with IIS,SMTP (IMAP and POP if using) services enabled and one self signed with only SMTP services enabled.

Run "get-ExchangeCertificate" from Exchange Management Shell.
Note Thumbprint of the certificate that reflect the required FQDN name of the server.
Review the current certificate that use by the Exchange server and each certificate function.
Write "Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint 2afd26617915932ad096c48eb3b847fc7457662 -Services "SMTP"

If you have only one certificate run "New-Exchangecertificate" which will create a new certificate enable SMTP service on that certificate by the above command if not enabled.

Thanks. I will implement this on Thursday
Does this affect email flow at all? No-one ever complained that email was missing or delayed
