in fact i've a fair amount of experience with dovecot and other
imap/smtp/http servers which could be configured to require an ssl
certificate.  however, my point was i've never done such, and i'd
probably save myself an hour or two if osmeone had a pre-existing
service against which i could test.  then again, i guess having
to learn something new isn't such a big deal either :)

i had some notes buried in a wiki at a former place of work with these
commands documented, i was hoping i wouldn't have to resort to looking
for them.  this makes it a bit easier, thanks.
