what I do is use sslwrap and xinetd
using xinetd I tell it to bind the IMAP service to 127.0.0.1
then I use sslwrap to wrap TCP/993 and point it to 127.0.0.1:143
infact I do the opposite on my zaurus, with stunnel. I don't have
an IMAPS capable client on the zaurus so I have stunnel, and
told stunnel to redirect localhost:993 to my imap server on 993,
and it works good :)
going the sslwrap route may be less complicated and faster to
setup. I've used sslwrap with cyrus imap and pop for more then
2 years now with no problems.
