Run a local IMAPd server for extra Mail storage
Authored by: jdera on Jun 08, '04 11:44:11AM

Also, this article describes how to import self-signed certificates into the Mac OS X system hooks, which will bypass the SSL error in Mail.app.

Run a local IMAPd server for extra Mail storage

just wanted to clarify the point that when you make certificate, make sure you enter server name for CN: field (i.e. instead of your own name, as some tutorials may suggest, enter example.com) Otherwise, your Mail.app will still complain after you transfer the certificate to your keychain.

THAT'S what I screwed up! Re-doing my certificate with

cd /System/Library/OpenSSL/certs
sudo openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out imapd.pem -keyout imapd.pem -days 3650

, using my own domain for CN: and then following jdera's URI's instructions for installation seems to have done the trick. Thanks much!
