you can extend exchange certificate. Is it issued from internal CA or 3rd party?

If you have internal CA, use this guide to get new cert. http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/roneng/2008/03/20/create-certificate-for-exchange-2007-servers-using-windows-ca/

As for 3rd party, maybe this link can help you: http://exchange.sembee.info/2007/install/multiplenamessl.asp

Hi Pramod,
You cannot extend a certificate.
You can only renew certificate which is a new certificate and assign the services to the certificate.
