so ldap support tls ?

so roundcube need to use STARTTLS just like it should with submission ?

or is it LDAPS before content is sent ?

possible ldaps need same ssl fixes just like imaps/smtps with verify 
peer certs ?

possible to get a mozilla link for the ldif setup or a copy from you 
that works from thunderbird ?, i have tryed to get it from mozilla, but 
still not found any info on it :(

for localhost i just say ssl/tls does not prevent data leaks since 
trafic is local, so all in all, use ssl/tls if outside of roundcube and 
openldap servere connections is used, same goes for thunderbird

just one thing left is that localhost can still be tcppdumped from unix 
users if its not socket with /path/to/socket eg inet socket is more 
unsecure if there is login users

hopefully i am right in that point
