OK - I think I see the problem. The DIGEST mechanism requires a 'service
name' parameter. For IMAP that is 'imap'. We have been using 'imsp' for
IMSP, however CMU uses 'imap' as the service name for IMSP. GSSAPI also
uses a service name and there we do use 'imap' for IMSP. I need to change
our digest plugin to use 'imap' then it should work. I will work on fixing
that for our next update.
