I have my own email server and CALDav server, when I try to set them up with Firefox OS I get errors, I cannot find a way to install my own CA and the OS will not let me use a self signed cert

I would assume that you tried the manual setup for the email application. We are constantly working on making it better. If you could provide more info so a bug can be filed on behalf for you.
I am also trying to manually add my Dovecot IMAP server and I'm getting an error [bad security]. In my server logs I see the following:
Aug 24 20:23:04 XXXXX dovecot: auth(default): new auth connection: pid=31698 Aug 24 20:23:04 XXXXXX dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected (no auth attempts): rip=my.ip.add.ress, lip=yo.ur.ip.ad, TLS: SSL_read() failed: error:14094418:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:tlsv1 alert unknown ca
I know the IMAP is configured correctly because I use Thunderbird with it every day ;)
Is the error due to bad password or to self-signed IMAP cert or ???
Hi codebear, "unknown ca" definitely sounds like a problem with the certificate not being signed by a trusted root (or with the chain of certificates up to a trusted root). However, I don't know the answer as to how or whether it's possible to add new root certificates to your device so you can trust a self-signed certificate.
How about adding an option to allow self signed certificates??
You can install a root certificate using this script http://www.pending.io/add-cacert-root-certificate-to-firefox-os/ I tried it and I was able to setup an email account successfully.
There is also a bug filed for this feature https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=919807
