sound like there's no configuration setting for the key/certificate 
path. Putting a private key in /etc/openssl/certs sounds bad for 
security to me, but maybe I'm making it a bigger deal than it really 

In any case, that page says, "The imapd.pem and ipop3d.pem must 
contain a private key and a certificate.  The private key must not be 
encrypted." So, you'll need to find the file that contains the private 
key that matches that certificate, cat the key and the certificate 
together, and put the combined file at /etc/openssl/certs/imapd.pem
