If I understand your scenario correctly, I think this is where POSH
would help:

http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-miller-posh/

That is, you could host a special JSON file at https://fastmail.fm/
(see the spec for details) and it would either provide or point to the
certificate that a client or peer server should expect you to present
at your server.
