Are you sure that your server is accepting connections at imaps port? I  
think it is much more common to have servers listening at ordinary imap  
port and then requiring to start encryption via StartTLS command.

On the other hand, if you get a message about CRAM-MD5 authentication, it  
means that the initial capability command has been executed properly so  
that the guess above is most likely invalid. The only thing I can think  
of is that the server advertises CRAM-MD5 but does not really support it  
and the authentication is supposed to be done with LOGIN command. What  
kind of server is this? Courier?
