Newbie question with Squirrelmail 1.41 and IMAP

I just recently installed 4.9 on a fresh server.  I was also 
installing squirrelmail 1.41 from the ports directory and also imap-uw
(imap4rev1).  I pointed my virtual server to the squirrelmail 
directory.  I can get the login prompt, but when I login with a 
username and password, I receive an error message that says unknown 
user or incorrect password.  On my console, it tells me the login
has been disabled with whatever username I use and auth=username
and host=  It prefaces the error with imapd[151].

I looked at the pkg-message in imap-uw and it says that by default 
imap will not accept unencrypted logins.  Since this is just a test 
server, I dont mind using unencrypted logins, but I dont know how to 
install it so it will work without them.  Or, I am not certain of 
what I need to do in order for it work with encrypted logins.  I 
looked at both the squirrelmail site and's site on 
imap, but I dont really see the solution.  It is probably something 
very simple that I am missing or that I am doing incorrectly.  Still, 
any light someone may be able to shed on this or to point me in th 
right direction would be greatly appreciated.
