Woa, easy on the send button. :)

Now don't quote me on this, but I think by default imap-uw doesn't allow 
plain-text logins like you are trying. However, there is a configuration 
setting, or actually several, that you have to do.

I would suggest going to the imap-uw website and reading their FAQ and 
the documentation.
