add services to certificate

Hi Experts,
on my exchange servers (2013) I have a new wildcard certificate installed.
But I am unable to add the new services POP3 and IMAP to it.

This certificate with thumbprint 8D449951A07C359DC39BBDE4FA50A188849E3480 and subject '*' cannot used for IMAP SSL/TLS connections because the subject is not a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). Use command Set-IMAPSettings to set X509CertificateName to the FQDN of the service.

I solved it on my end without a new cert.

Work with your SSL Cert vendor to change it to a UC/SAN certificate.  You will need to create a new certificate request via Exchange.

I always use UCC/SAN certs for exchange. I agree with Todd, get a UCC cert and have the POP and IMAP name spaces added to the cert, and imported it into Exchange and then add those services. i would actually add all the services to the new cert.

The services IMAP and POP are still added to the old certificate.

I cannot change my wildcard to another certificate.
What else can we do ?
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
purchase another cert.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
good deal.

My wildcard certificate has two subject names:

For exchange services I cannot use *
So I used for IMAP and POP.

After a restart of the services IMAP and POP I was finished.

On the new wildcard certificate I have now all services listed.

There is no need to buy a new certificate. This answer was wrong from the experts.
