It's case a) .. so my mailserver B is telling me:

May 13 13:58:10 mail postfix/smtp[12904]: Untrusted TLS connection
  established to[]:25: TLSv1.2 with cipher
  AECDH-AES256-SHA (256/256 bits)

And like I said.. it looks well from the openssl command and from
Chromium if I use the certificate inside an Apache2.. but postfix is
complaining and it is not telling me anything special what the issue is.
