Im not an expert on openssl, but when running the command I got an empty
output file. Of course, I substituted ${hostname}:imaps with the right
server and port, and used sslcacertfile without the $ at the beginning.

After a while I realised I had to end the connection with ^D, and then
it worked.

So maybe these issues should be clarified, for the next non-expert
trying this...
