I ran this imap server for a short time but never had problems making
and using a ssl cert. My server's called nagual.st. Are you sure the
server indentifies as localhost even if contacted from the *outside* ?
It does of course when you contact it from the local nic.
As suggested using another imap server is also my idea.
I don't use dovecot, but the whole courier mail package.
It works like a charm. And is very fast. It does use maildirs though,
