Install Your SSL Certificate
- Download your certificate from the unique secure link we provide your technical contact via order fulfillment email.
- The ZIP file you download contain the SSL and Intermediate CA certificate in PKCS#7 file (i.e. ssl_certificate.p7b).
- Unzip the files onto the server where you will install the certificate.
- Open the Exchange Management Shell. Click Start > Programs > Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 > Exchange Management Shell.
- Run the Import-ExchangeCertificate and Enable-ExchangeCertificate commands together (both commands are run on the same line, separated by a pipe character).
Import-ExchangeCertificate -Path C:\ssl_certificate.p7b | Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services "SMTP, IMAP, POP, IIS"
Note: The Services option can be any combination of these values: IMAP, POP, UM, IIS, SMTP. To disable a certificate, set the Services parameter to 'None'.
For more information regarding the Exchange commands, please refer to this Microsoft Knowledge base article.
- Verify that your certificate is enabled by running the Get-ExchangeCertificate command.
C:\> Get-ExchangeCertificate -DomainName your.domain.name
- In the Services column, letters SIP and W stand for SMTP, IMAP, POP3 and Web (IIS).
Note: If your certificate isn't properly enabled, you can re-run the Enable-ExchangeCertificate command by pasting the thumbprint of your certificate as the -ThumbPrint argument such as:
Enable-ExchangeCertificate -ThumbPrint [paste] -Services "SMTP, IMAP, POP, IIS"
- Test your certificate by connecting to your server with Internet Explorer, ActiveSync, or Outlook.
If you are unable to use these instructions for your server, Thawte recommends that you contact either the vendor of your software or an organization that supports Microsoft Exchange 2007 server.
