i asked for using *a different device* like Thunderbird or whatever on a PC
to confirm that STARTLS is working in general or not and not a different
application on the same Apple device as we all know that any app
on a iPhone is using *the same* backends as the vendor application

that's why there is no Firefox because the would have to use Safari
and make a nice window around it but not a own rendering engine

with thunderbird you can *explicit* switch between IMAPS on 993 and
STARTTLS on port 143 and so easy verify if the server is working and
only your specific client have a problem
