You won't be able to login with telnet, you need to use a client like kmail or
Opera browser, they do secure imap on port 143.
Did you use Debian packages for Courier?
Try this documentation, it's for Debian
I use Postfix and not Exim, though. Perhaps I misunderstood what you were
trying to do, I thought you wanted a secure connection. If you want a normal
IMAP connection, you should use the original imapd-ssl contents.
