Your servers capabilities are 'IMAP4 IMAP4REV1 STARTTLS
LOGINDISABLED' meaning it can log in via STARTTLS but not via
plaintext authentication. (I just filed a bug against myself to honor
that capability) STARTTLS support was added in the just
released stable, so you might need to upgrade if you want to use starttls.

Alternatively as plain SSL seems to work, you probably simply ommitted
to configure ssl=True in your repository configuration.
