At first I thought that this couldn't possibly have anything to it, but after some experimentation, I discovered that things worked if I was using SSL. I tried this and did a make clean and reinstalled but it didn't change anything. I also tried selecting "Allow plain text passwords and SSL" on the menu during the make process of imap-uw. No, still the same behavior. I think I'm going to give up and force everyone to use SSL which probably isn't a bad thing. However, it sure would have been nice if the error imap-uw generated was a little more revealing. Especially when the user connected without SSL, it could have returned a very explicit error message like "Clear connections no longer supported, use port 995 with SSL". Thanks for the response, it did help.
