I'd just like to say thanks for  all the information in this thread as
it finally prompted me to set up my old talk21 email address in my MUA
of choice  - heirloom-mailx, (talk21  was a email service  provided by
British Telecom and is now farmed out to Yahoo).

IMAP with  SSL is working fine  but much to my  disappointment I could
only get  SMTP working without SSL  (note: I have SSL working  fine on
other accounts so I  think this is a talk21 thing  (and a quick google
search seems to back me up on this)).
