If you read right to the end of /usr/ports/mail/imap-uw/pkg-message you should have seen this: ===> NB: IMAP-UW now rejects non-encrypted logins by default. To change this ===> behaviour, recompile and reinstall cclient and imap-uw ports with one of ===> the following make variables defined: WITHOUT_SSL - build without SSL/encryption support. WITH_SSL_AND_PLAINTEXT - build with SSL/encryption support, but allow non-encrypted logins. So the answer is that you need to rebuild/reinstall the cclient and imap-uw ports with either '-DWITHOUT_SSL' or '-DWITH_SSL_AND_PLAINTEXT' on the make command line. I believe either of these will give you a server that will accept plaintext logins, but I don't have my notes from when I did this to check for sure. At least one of them should work, anyway.
