Importing Certificate in Exchange 2013 Server [step by step]

One of the most commonly asked question (still today) in TechNet Exchange Forum is related to IMPORTING EXCHANGE CERTIFICATE . Most of the organization who already has Exchange 2007 or 2010 deployment don’t need to buy a new certificate and thus utilize the existing certificate when they are standing up a new Exchange 2013 server. This is where you need to import the certificate.  Many of the admins get stuck with this and I’ve seen this question asked repeatedly.  I decided to summarize it in few steps. Below are step by step instructions to import the certificate
