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