P.S. I just had another look at my Logs again - and I'm finding now the 
following when Thunderbird 3.1 tries to establish TLS unsuccessful:

server dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected (no auth attempts): 
rip=, lip=, TLS handshaking: SSL_accept() 
failed: error:14094412:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert bad 

But still - I'm not getting it since I'm even able to establish the 
connection successful via the konsol as you could see in one of my last 
mails. weired.


  No problem:
