I had similar problems and this is what I did to get it working:
Edited /etc/courier/imapd-ssl  making the following changes

IMAPDSSLSTART=NO  (it was set to YES)

IMAPDSTARTTLS=YES  (the default was NO)

Then I edited imapd.cnf and changed the hostname to my fully-qualified 
hostname, it will not work if you do not do that.  You only need to edit the 
stuff under 
[ req_dn ]
from "C" to "emailAddress"

Then I renamed the file imapd.pem to imapd.pem.orig and then I deleted the 

and then I ran 'mkimapdcert' as root.  This produced 
another /usr/lib/courier/imapd.pem and I COPIED that file to /etc/courier/ 
and restarted courier-imapd and then I was able to login to my imap accounts 
on port 143 using TLS with kmail or Opera.  Some clients cannot connect to 
this type of setup and can only use SSL on port 993.
