what's your ssl/tls config in imapd.conf?

Did you copied the key content as text with a mouse over text terminals or so?

You need at least:

	tlscache_db: ...
	tls_cert_file: ...
	tls_key_file ...
	tls_ca_file: ...

on some systems the:

seems required too (to point where your root certs are to find).

and (optionally) for security details:


I remember struggling with some cross-chain certified certificate in the past 
on a linux system - i solved that by recreate the ca file 

Check with openssl s_client against your apache, what he is delivering on SSL 
and compare to your certificate chain you installed / use in cyrus.

good luck so far and best regards,
