You can have a look here (do not forget last slash!)
there are conf files for all applications to build a secure mail server. User 
can connect to Cyrus-IMAP only imaps/pop3s ports. All connects without 
encryption refused.
Web-mail. Squiremail (version 1.4 and above) can connect to IMAP also using 
SSL channel. Horde also. So you do not need any exception for localhost. Jast 
place your webmail package under https tree in Apache.
