I'm not sure, but I think that the uw-imapd shipped with sarge is by default set to use tls support. So any non-compliant client won't be able to log in. I'm using Sylpheed because it supports well. You could also have a look at the documentation in /usr/share/doc/libc-client2002debian/
Might be this could help:
dpkg-reconfigure -plow libc-client2002ddebian

The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and
not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could
have materialized -- and never knowing.
