Import the Intermediate Certificate
- Copy the intermediate certificate from the body of the email you received and then paste it into a simple text editor.
- Save it as "intermediate.cer".
- Open MMC.
- Select File > Add/Remove Snap In.
- Select Add.
- Select Certificates > Add.
- Select Computer Account > Next.
- Select Local Computer > Finish > Close > OK.
- Select Certificates > Intermediate Certificate Authorities > Certificates.
- Right-click Certificates. Select All-Tasks > Import.
- The Import Wizard will start. Close MMC.
- Copy the SSL certificate from the email and save it as "mydomain.cer".
- Open the Exchange Management Shell. Enter and run the import and enable commands, respectively:
Import-ExchangeCertificate -Path C:\mydomain.cer
Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services "SMTP, IMAP, POP, IIS"
- The services can be any combination of these values: IMAP, POP, UM, IIS, SMTP.
- To verify that your certificate is running and enabled run the command:
Get-ExchangeCertificate -DomainName server.domain.com
- In response to the above command you should see the certificate's thumbprint: an abbreviated list of the services and "mydomain.cer". If your certificate is not properly enabled you can re-run the modified enable command with the certificate thumbprint:
Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint [paste thumbprint here] -Services "SMTP,IMAP, POP, IIS"
- Reboot your server and test that your certificate is working by connecting with IE, ActiveSync, or Outlook.
