  2. 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" 

  3. The services can be any combination of these values: IMAP, POP, UM, IIS, SMTP.
  4. To verify that your certificate is running and enabled run the command:

     Get-ExchangeCertificate -DomainName

     Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint [paste thumbprint here] -Services "SMTP,IMAP, POP, IIS" 
  6. Reboot your server and test that your certificate is working by connecting with IE, ActiveSync, or Outlook.
