I tried this, but I don't think I was allowed to do it:
------------------------------------
[[email protected] ~]$ sudo ssh [email protected] -p2001 -N -L993:localhost:993
The authenticity of host '[www.gayleard.com]:2001 ([86.43.71.228]:2001)'
can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is ....
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added '[www.gayleard.com]:2001,[86.43.71.228]:2001'
(RSA) to the list of known hosts.
[email protected]'s password:
Permission denied, please try again.
[email protected]'s password:
------------------------------------

However, I went ahead and changed the IMAPS server in kmail on my laptop
to localhost;
this gave the error 
"The server certificate failed the authenticity test (localhost)."

I wonder if I could have a problem with my dovecot certs?
I'll re-create them and see if that is any better.
