Dovecot is not reading connections from iOS devices correctly. Any ideas?

Some mail readers have auto-discover features that are rather stupid.
If possible, manually configure the SSL style (TLS/STARTTLS) and port
rather than letting it guess.
To diagnose whether it is some dovecot config error, you can manually
connect with both flavours of SSL
openssl s_client -connect 192.168.0.15:993
... or ...
openssl s_client -starttls imap -connect 192.168.0.15:143
then if it gets past the SSL handshake,
a login <user> <password>
to test the authentication part. This will at least tell you whether
it's a client side or server side issue. (However, since it is working
with other client, it's probably a client side issue.)
