Wheter the cert thing be in the install script, or it is documented that 
we need to create the certs manually. I personally don't care. Now, I'm 
able to test all the features I need to test, integrate dkim (which 
definitely helped a lot to avoid outgoing emails being treated as spam, 
integrating the use of Postgrey (reduced incoming spam by more than 75% 
on my previous Kolab 2.x installations.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to integrate these as part of the 
installation?  That would make the mail setup even stronger in regard 
with incoming spam and outgoing mail reputation, and is very easy to 
manage (Postgrey is a one-time config, and DKIM only need a script to 
care about multi-domain, plus some TXT records in DNS...

Feeling much better to finally getting on the same page as you guys...
