In that case, you should set the hostspec to 'mail.fanmail.com'. Of  
course, that name should (DNS) resolve to the IP address of the server  
where Sieve is living.

$backends['imap']['disabled'] = true;
$backends['sieve']['disabled'] = false;
= 'mail.fanmail.com';

Of course, the certificate on the server should contain  
CN='mail.fanmail.com'. TLS doesn't care about hostname greetings, the  
verification process uses the CN in the certificate and must match the  
(forward) DNS record of that CN (reverse is not required).
