My employer had the wisdom to switch to the Zimbra mail server. It
only supports PLAIN authentication for IMAP4REV1. When I try to
connect with sylpheed, I get the following log:
* creating IMAP4 connection to imap.myemployer.com:993 ...
* SSL certificate of imap.myemployer.com previously accepted
[16:00:10] IMAP4< * OK server ready. Unauthorized Access Prohibited.

Unfortunately, thunderbird does handle this correctly.
Any ideas what could be going on?
