The instructions for ports/mail/imap-uw tell you that "make cert" generates certs that are self-signed and warns you that it is better to get "real" certs but doesn't explain how to do that. Any suggestions?

"real" certs are ones signed by a well-known registrar like Verisign, EnTrust, Thawte, etc. To get one, you generate a CSR (certificate signing request) as done in "make cert", only you send that CSR to the registrar and pay them to sign it, very much like one does when getting a "real" SSL cert to do HTTPS.


There is nothing magic about the well-known registrars, except that their CA certificates already ship as pre-trusted with the email clients and web browsers that most people use.
