Yes Antonio I did.

The solution was to quit using UW and switch to dovecot. The switch is simple:

(1) install dovecot
(2) edit /etc/dovecot.conf, set

# Disable SSL/TLS support.
ssl_disable = no

#mail_location =
mail_location = mbox:~/Mail:INBOX=/var/spool/mail/%u

(if your mailboxes are in ~/Mail and inbox in /var/spool/mail/user - the default on openSuSE 10.3)

(3) install the dovecot.pem ssl cert:

cd /usr/share/doc/packages/dovecot
vi dovecot.crt (change as you need)
sh makecrt.sh

Done!

If you use fetchmail for spamassassin, etc... then just get your ssl fingerprint with:

09:11 nirvana~/tmp> openssl x509 -in /etc/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem -noout -fingerprint?SHA1 Fingerprint=AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF:00:11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88:99

Set up your fetchmail statement:

poll *your.mailserver.com* protocol IMAP : user *yourusername* with password *yourpassword* sslfingerprint "AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF:00:11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88:99"

That's it for the basic operation
