Are you looking for a
public instance with a public registration process ?
no, we don't even need an
account. sorry for not mentioning it.
It's about testing TLS (Transport Layer security) -- it works with valid
certificates but by default we also accept self-signed certs or "invalid
hostnames". So if you know about such imap/smtp servers please send us
the domain -- we are only going to test if delta gets over the TLS
Otherwise, setting up a private Exim/Dovecot pair
isn't that much work...
and if you can quickly provide an exim/dovecot install
with a self-signed
cert that'd be great ;)
I guess you're probably trying to do a quick test, but consider that a
default Exim installation comes already with a self-signed cert and I
think also Dovecot is initially setup in that way, or can otherwise be
easily pointed to the exim cert in the configuration file.
A virtual setup (VBOX/Docker/etc..) is minutes away and would give you
the benefits of a mock mail server for future repeatable tests.
