Thawte SSL cert for courier-imap

    Can anybody give me some instructions please?

    There are a few threads here that talk about generating your own SSL certs for use with courier-imap for allow clients to get their email over an SSL link. But these seem to involve requiring the clients to download the generated cert and install it on their machines.

    But I have a lovely Thawte SSL cert for our main website. Can I use this cert instead of generating my own (and presumably this won't require users to download anything)? Or will the fact that the FQDN has a www in front of it make a difference? This particular domain is the default domain in Plesk for the 1st IP address in my server.

    And if I can use it, what exactly do I need to do? What bits should I copy?

    Any help on this would be appreciated!
