Upon startup of mail, SSL certificate is checked/accepted, next comes the user/pass combo and here is where IMAP login fails. The message "You cannot log in to <servername> because you have enabled secure authentication and this server does not support it. <br> <br> To log in, turn off secure authentication for this account." 11/25 #6 is the last i686 build that works. The next available build is 11/30 #20, in which IMAP logging in no longer works. My mail server uses SSL on top of IMAP.
do you have "use secure authentication" checked? If so, uncheck it and try again. Since you're using SSL, there's no need to use secure authentication, and it looks like it doesn't work with your server. There was a change not to fall back to insecure authentication if secure authentication failed...
Ok, unchecked secure auth and it works. I had no idea (nothing told me so) that it was falling back to insecure authentication. Mebbe there could be an alert or at least a debug message to that order? Thanks marking fixed/invalid

I think you'd actually see two login attempts if you watched the status msgs like a hawk, and had a very slow connection, but I could be wrong :-) But now that we're not falling back to insecure auth, we don't need an extra message.
