Can you try
Code:
cp /etc/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem-old /etc/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem
dpkg-reconfigure dovecot-common
?

its just returns that there is already one.

just to clarify the only reason i want to do this is so sign the cert off as someone else then localhost.localhost so thunderbird will stop annoying me every time i check my email.
