I am running imap-uw:

imap-uw-2004g_1,1   University of Washington IMAP4rev1/POP2/POP3 mail servers

I was able to find out that Outlook does not support Cram-md5.  That is
the issue.

I am going to use sendmail alias to foreward to gmail and use their pop3
service.  I only need outlook for myself to sync with my PDA.
