SBS 2011 - Event ID 24 on a certificate that has been Revoked in daily reports

Siv used Ask the Experts™
I had this question after viewing SBS2011 - Expired Certificates - MSExchange Web Services Event ID 24.

My issue is that I get this error message in my daily reports:

MSExchange Web Services      24      08/03/2017 14:48:27      42
Event Details:    
The Exchange certificate [Subject] CN=Graham Sivill, OU=SBSUsers, OU=Users, OU=MyBusiness, DC=direct-ifc, DC=local [Issuer] CN=direct-ifc-DIRECTSERVER-CA [Serial Number] 23ABEFA6000100000012 [Not Before] 23/06/2014 11:23:58 [Not After] 23/06/2015 11:23:58 [Thumbprint] 00BC42E5C2B89AF7905F4F1DD69832DFD60B2EBE expired on 23/06/2015 11:23:58.

So reading up the fix for this error I ran this EMS command:
Remove-ExchangeCertificate -Server DirectServer -Thumbprint 00BC42E5C2B89AF7905F4F1DD69832DFD60B2EBE

This gets the response:
Are you sure you want to perform this action?
Remove certificate with thumbprint 00BC42E5C2B89AF7905F4F1DD69832DFD60B2EBE from the computer's certificate store?

The certificate with thumbprint 00BC42E5C2B89AF7905F4F1DD69832DFD60B2EBE was found but is not valid for use with Exchange Server (reason: PkixKpServerAuthNotFoundInEnhancedKeyUsage).
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Remove-ExchangeCertificate], InvalidOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 7884D31B,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.RemoveExchangeCertificate

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>

The certificate is listed in my revoked certificates.  How can I stop this message coming up, is there a way to delete the certificate permanently from the revoked certificates in the Certification Authority? If I right-click the certificate in the Certification Authority the only Tasks are:

View Attributes/Extensions
Export Binary Data
Unrevoke Certificate.

All of which seem irrelevant?

Any help with this would be appreciated.

CA - and then delete the certificate from revoked list. its anyways expired.
if you still want export it. This is  a user certificate ?


This question was ages ago and I have since found how to delete it!
What does "CA" mean (I normally associate that with "Certificate Authority"?)/


This was the best solution to this question.
