Don't give up too easily/early on this.

I said this before, but MacOSX Mail behaves weirdly.  I've more than
once changed a server setting, without apparent effect, only to have
MacOSX Mail mysteriously start working again after some time.  Maybe it
caches settings.  Also, disable "Automatic manage connection" as failure
to establish a successful session will cause your client to do some
auto-wandering to discover settings, which could really do your head in.
