I just tried 2.1.16. The iPhone has no trouble on 143 but on 993, it's
just like 2.2

tcpdump is showing me raw text going past, so I know I'm not getting TLS
on either Dovecot 2.1 or 2.2
It seems that TLS is not supported by my client. Pity.
I thank you for your help though. We have a workaround, which is good
enough for my particular
situation: self-signed certificates. However, that solution is not
ideal for most people. It is
for that reason that I'm willing to keep hacking at this if others have
further ideas / suggestions.
