This is not a problem with the imap extension. That's correctly 
configured with SSL support, but imap_general.php doesn't use it, use 
the standard fsockopen() function. In PHP4, SSL support for fsockopen is 
enabled only if openssl extension is compiled in statically; with PHP5 
you have not this problem. Unfortunately there isn't a obvious solution 
for this drawback.
