What is the function of the SSL Cert in Exch 2010

What is the function of the SSL Cert in Exch 2010

What is the function of the SSL Cert in Exch 2010

I have read that to encrypt outbound email messages we can configure/use SMIME or some other 3rd party method.
But this leaves me a bit unclear as to what exactly Exchange 2010 uses the SSL Cert for???
I've read things like:
1)Internal client-server communication is encrypted - is this true? is it in-transit only?
2)the sesssion is encrypted. - That's nice but doesn't a session include transfer of SMTP messages?
I hope someone can shed some light as to what exactly our SSL Cert is doing for us in our not very complicated environment.
Thank you all
