Self-signed certs have always been a problem in OL (and I guess OE, but
I don't use it or support it much)...

There is no way to permanently save one via the pop-up...

Meaning, the client will get the warning and have to accept it every tim
they connect for the first time.

Nothing dovecot can do about that...

That said - it will work...

But again, would need more details... are your config details secret?
