I'm sorry I've no specific help with this I've not seen it on any of our 
courier installs all I can say is have you checked the certificates are 
where they should be and have the correct priv's have you tried using the 
install of horde that wont connect, to connect to another ssl imap (just in 
case the problems at the client(imp) end). you could try grabbing courier 
with the debuger to see if you can spot where it's failing.  I did a couple 
of searches and there is a french post with a chap saying he got this with 
mysql built in to his courier, we only run pam+ldap so maybe a clue there. 

If all that fails try the courier list, the chap that built it is 
surprisingly helpful.
