IMAP/LOGINDISABLED support in Archiveopteryx

LOGINDISABLED is an IMAP extension which means: The server is configured to reject plaintext login. The client has to use either TLS or a challenge/response mechanism such as CRAM-MD5.

In Archiveopteryx, the configuration variable allow-plaintext-passwords controls LOGINDISABLED. It is often better to use allow-plaintext-access instead.
