If you have still not completed the procedure of generating a CSR for issuing an SSL certificate, please follow this link to access a stepwise procedure.

Step 1 – Download and open the '.zip' file containing the certificate, which will be named as 'your_domain_name.cer'.

Step 2 – Copy and paste the file 'your_domain_name.cer' on to your exchange server's C:\.

Step 3 – Now open the 'Exchange Management Shell', go to 'Start' menu and select 'Microsoft Exchange Server 2007' and click on 'Exchange Management Shell'.

Step 4 – Run together the following commands: 'Import-ExchangeCertificate' and 'Enable-ExchangeCertificate'.

Please note that both Commands are to be run on the same line, separated by a pipe-character, as shown below:

Import-ExchangeCertificate -Path C:\your_domain_name.cer | Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services "SMTP, IMAP, POP, IIS"

The option of 'Services' can be a combination of IMAP, POP, UM, IIS, SMTP etc.
