Sending encryption emails

I am trying to send an encrypted email and I am getting a error message about missing a certificate. I have a SSL certificate on my exchange server, however it looks like this issue is more about the client not the exchange server.  I have tired on various outlook versions. Outlook 2013 is the current one I am testing. I am running a in house version of exchange 2010.

the sending account needs a s/mime certificate, and you need the recipients s/mime certificate public key.  The email will be encrypted using your private key and the recipients public key.  They will decrypt it using their private key and your public key

how do I create a s/mime certificate?  The screen shots I attached just talk about a signed certificate.  Do you have any documentation or point me to how to get this completed.  Thanks,

Commented:
you request it from a certificate authority
for testing you can use cacert.org certificates

This pointed me in the correct direction. I still have some work to do on the server.
