True. On the other hand, for what I want to do, geek value is at least
half the fun. Maybe more. :)

Thanks, but I realized after I looked in imapd.conf that the real
problem was that tls_cipher_list did not include any RSA ciphers, and
that's what the CA.pl in Debian creates. So I added 'aRSA', and now I
am happily connecting via SSL. Plus, I now have a CA of my own I can
play with for things like apache-ssl and the like.
