Renewing expired Self-signed Exchange 2007 certificate... still getting warning in Outlook

I've got a client running Exchange Server 2007.  The self-signed certificate expired on Aug 13.  One of the users sent me a screen shot of the certificate info showing the serial number etc.  I did the standard Exchange Management Console commands, renewing the certificate with the related thumbprint, etc.  As expected I got a prompt re overwriting, to which I said Yes.

The user exited Outlook and re-ran, but still gets the certificate warning, still showing expired on the 13th.

I did this all 2 years ago, and I recall that it went smoothly.  The instructions I followed did not say I had to restart the Exchange services, but do you think that's what's causing this?

Self-signed certificates is not something I do very often, so I'm not really up to speed with it.  I followed Steps 1 and 2 of this page: http://www.ncol.net/how-to-renew-a-self-signed-certificate-in-exchange-server-2007/

Is it necessary to restart the server or Exchange services after this?  Also, is step 3 on the web page I've indicated necessary to renew the certificate?
