i'm running dovecot on OSX, but have previously had _similar_ troubles
that, eventually, turned out to be borked certs.
have you checked/verified the certs?
if not, take a look with:
(1) another server, if you have it
(2) mulberry MUA (mulberrymail.com) or thunderbird. both have nice
cert view capabilities. simply dunno if Mail.app does -- i don't use it
(3) check your certs with, e.g.:
openssl verify -verbose -issuer_checks -purpose sslserver -CAfile
fwiw, there's a useful reference starting point here:
"Certificate Management and Installation with OpenSSL"
