Installing Thawte Certificate on imap pop smtp

I currently have self-signed certificates on our mail server, but they are now expired.

I have just received the CA-crt back from thawte.  I have the webmail portion completed with installing the certificates, but I am having some issues with getting them installed on SMTP.

I tried to put them in as the *.crt and *.key files, but sendmail didn't like that.

The temporary certificates installed are:
define(`confCACERT_PATH', `/etc/mail/certs')dnl
define(`confCACERT', `/etc/mail/certs/mycert.pem')dnl
define(`confSERVER_CERT', `/etc/mail/certs/mycert.pem')dnl
define(`confSERVER_KEY', `/etc/mail/certs/mykey.pem')dnl
define(`confCLIENT_CERT', `/etc/mail/certs/mycert.pem')dnl
define(`confCLIENT_KEY', `/etc/mail/certs/mykey.pem')dnl

and the certs i have generated and sent to thawte are: (signed from thawte) (what I generated and sent to them)

Any help on how to get this converted from the files i have to *.pem files would be much appreciated! 

(our temporary certificates are now expired and I have to get these installed ASAP)
