TLS is done by the imap-login process. This process does all the actual talking 
to the client. The imap process blindly trusts whoever invoked it (imap-login), 
it doesn't authenticate the user either. Timo didn't want any crypto or 
authentication code, or to link against any such libraries in the imap process 

Your imap-login process does show TLS and this can be logged in the log file as 
well, see login_log_format_elements and the variables %c and %k
