My thought exactly :-)

Yep. And localhost is working.

It's actually a different domain, but i changed it for privacy reasons :-)

yep, that's a difference....

Yep, and both using localhost and using a FQDN works flawlessly using SSL.
That's the strange thing: i can use thunderbird without a problem and i

same symtoms: long wait (1 minute, i would say) and then i get

i've just tried dovecot (which totally doesn't work :-), but i'll try 
something like courier/cyrus later this week, although i doubt that's

Update later this week (i hope) :-)
