We currently have installed Microsoft's cert server on our AD01 machine to create certs for SMTP and our OWA site. I would like to know how I can change them to our new wildcard cert and get rid of the Microsoft cert server please and thanks!

Thanks
Andrew

Why did you buy a wildcard certificate? You should have purchased a SAN/UC certificate as that is what Exchange 2007 needs.
Remote sites using SSL may have problems with wildcard certificates, as do some versions of Windows Mobile.

You need to use the enable-certificate command to change the certificate round. I tend to use PowerGUI (http://www.powergui.org/) to make the changes rather than the manual commands.

Hi


That is done form the IIS where you have your mailbox server. Just fire up IIS admin and then right-klick default wesite and then chose Directory Security tab where you choose the button Server Certificate  and then choose to assign an existing certificate and so on

Not with Exchange 2007 it isn't.
That is wrong. You need to use the commandlets in Exchange 2007 to assign the certificate so that Exchange is aware of it. IIS is no longer used.
If you have been doing it that way with Exchange 2007 then you have been doing it incorrectly.
