  • Root Certificate and Exchange 2007

    Hi all,

    I am a newbie with certificate so please bear with me. My root certificate is expiring soon and all Exchange 2007 ( CCR ) are installed with the certificate. I would like to ask is if I renew the certificate, will it affect the mail flow of the system?

    Another question is , if I renew it, will it automatically renew the rest of the systems that are installed with the certificate?

    Appreciate anyone can shed some light on this.

    If the root certificate is expiring, then every system using it will need to have the new root installed - that includes clients. You will then need to issue a new certificate from that root and also install that on to every Exchange server. Easily done for domain members, but for non domain members like mobile phones that is a manual job.

    Or you could just purchase a UC certificate for $80/year that is widely trusted and not have to worry about it. Instructions here:
