HOWTO - OS X - how can I use sslcertfile

I had the problem, that I dad to regularly (sometimes daily) have to
switch between different cert_fingerprints for gmail.

Now under Linux I was using the sslcacertfile, and it worked perfectly,
but I did not find a solution for OS X thanks to a question on [1]:

1) Install curl-ca-bundle using e.g. homebrew:
| brew install curl-ca-bundle

2) Now the certificates are installed, and you can use them by adding 
| sslcacertfile = /usr/local/opt/curl-ca-bundle/share/ca-bundle.crt
to the .offlineimaprc file in the appropriate repository

You can also use Macports, but then the path will be:
| sslcacertificate = /opt/local/share/curl/curl-ca-bundle.crt

Hope that this is useful for somebody,
