I have had no problems with Apple Mail+Dovecot. All I had to do was
import the certificate so I wouldn't get the question about the
certificate every time I started Apple Mail.
In the account setup, in the advanced tab, the settings are Port:
993, Use SSL is checked and Authentication is Password.
I'm running Dovecot 1.0rc7 if that makes any difference.
