The question of using CRAM-MD5 over TLS can lead to holy wars.  It is  
still what in recommended by the UW IMAP team, but it has the  
disadvantage of not being universally support and it means that the  
server stores an unencrypted copy of the users' secret credentials.   
I, personally, don't use it for the servers I have managed.
