I got it to work right.  It turns out that I had to make clean on both
cclient and imap-uw, build cclient with "-D WITH_SSL_AND_PLAINTEXT",
install it and then do the same with imap-uw.  Oh, and it helps to spell
"PLAINTEXT" correctly.  "PLAIMTEXT" doesn't have the same effect.

Thanks for the pointer to Dovecot - I'll check it out.  Sorry about the 
mostly-OT chatter.
