Hallo again.

the problem with different certs is solved.
( tested with dovecot2.Beta3 )

there are multiple solutions:
(hopefully without typos)

Solution 1
ssl = yes
ssl_cert = <IMAP-cert.pem
ssl_key = <IMAP-key.pem

protocol pop3 {
  ssl_cert = <POP3-cert.pem
  ssl_key = <POP3-key.pem
--- snap

In this case *always* the IMAP-Cert is used except for pop3.
Maybe LMTP will be ssl capable someday, so LMTP would implicit use the IMAP-cert.
This may introduce unwanted effects.

Solution 2
ssl = no

protocol imap {
  ssl = yes
  ssl_cert = <IMAP-cert.pem
  ssl_key = <IMAP-key.pem
protocol pop3 {
  ssl = yes
  ssl_cert = <POP3-cert.pem
  ssl_key = <POP3-key.pem
--- snap
this is a more logical Solution to me.

In both cases dovecot -n does *not* show any protocol {} Sections...
