If I'm understanding you correctly, by just adding (to 2.3) an IMAP-SSL option
(with a value of imap/ssl) to the protocols choices menu, that's the only needed
change to IMP? 2.3 will generate the connection string as
{server/imap/ssl:port}mailbox with just that change - given all of the other
stuff in place, it sounds like that's sufficient?
