+    you won't have SSL client certificate support. Specifically the
+    <envar>ssl_client_cert</envar> configuration variable is recognized
+    as invalid. That means you will loose the ability to use

+    a client certification is required for authentication on an IMAP server.
+    For these reasons we recommend to link <application>Mutt</application>
