If I don't use SSL it works fine. I even tried creating my own certs
and it's just the same.
Please help.
TLS server engine: cannot load cert/key data is certainly a problem but evidently there is also something very wrong with /var/ lib/imap/tls_sessions.db

you might want to delete that file and restart cyrus-imapd so it gets recreated. I would presume that it like all other things cyrus-imapd should be cyrus:mail ownership and in checking on my system, that file is 600.

you might want to check dmesg/syslog/audit.log to see if selinux is involved in /var/lib/imap/tls_sessions.db issue too.


SeLinux is turned off. I deleted /var/lib/imap/tls_sessions.db and cyrus created a new one. I created the certs for cyrus, changed ownership to cyrus:mail and did chmod 600. I'm still having the same problem.


I've done everything possible to get cyrus to read my certs or keys or anything created with openssl to no avail. I keep getting the same error. SSL works flawlessly with postfix, but not with cyrus. I'm starting to think it's a problem with cyrus.
Help please,
