I've decided to give Dovecot a shot. However, when I try to run it I get and error message:

  root # dovecot
  Fatal: Can't use SSL certificate /var/dovecot/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem:
  No such file or directory

So I need to make some certs. However, there is no "make certs" for dovecot - so what exactly do I need to do? Do I just use openssl to make me some certificates and put them in the right places Or are there some fine points to making appropriate certificates?

Postfix: Actually IIRC, there were two, but could only find one in a short
time of checking.
Postfix versions before 1.1.12 allow an attacker to bounce-scan private
networks, or use the daemon as a DDoS tool by forcing the daemon to connect
to an arbitrary service at an arbitrary IP address and receiving either a
bounce message or by analyzing timing. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0468 to
this issue.

Postfix versions from 1.1 up to and including 1.1.12 have a bug where a
remote attacker could send a malformed envelope address and:
