mupdate with starttls?

When I do "telnet mupdate-host 3905", I see that mupdate lists STARTTLS 
capability.  However, when frontends and backends are connecting to it, 
they just go plaintext.  Same thing with lmtp.  It lists STARTLS 
capability, however when mail is delivered from frontend to backend 
over lmtp it just goes plaintext.  On the other hand, proxied client 
IMAP connections are encrypted.  Is there a way to force Cyrus IMAPD to 
use TLS for all communication between frontends and backends?

All frontends and backends have certificates signed by CA and 
referenced from imapd.conf file:

tls_cert_file: /etc/certs/hostname-imap.crt
tls_key_file: /etc/certs/hostname-imap.key
tls_ca_file: /etc/certs/cacert.pem

See Ya' later, alligator!
