Speaking of that Sandy...

The install of Postfix, if you select the right options in the Sysconfig
editor portion of yast, creates certificates etc for you for TLS, etc.

This is done by mkpostfixcert - driven out of SuseConfig

Imaps (secure imap) needs certificates too. Can the they use
the same certificates (the ones in /etc/postfix/ssl ) ??
