How do I create a self signed SSL certificate?


Hey there, I'm IMAP'ing my email from my RH 8.0 box, and I just enabled imaps, got the port all forwareded, but when I connected to it it says my cert is crap, and just has (what looks to be) default junk in there (ie: localhost.localdomain ... etc)

How can I create my own certificate, so it will have my hostname and such in there? Its only for me, so I dont care if its signed by verisign, but at the same rate, Id like to know how to do it.

Second question, does https use the same created certificate then?

Thanks
