Riseup ( ... ap-and-pop) macht darauf aufmerksam eine Passwortverschlüsselung nicht vorzunehmen:

Don’t enable secure passwords or secure authentication. These are somewhat of a misnomer. These methods of specifying passwords require that the E-Mail server keep a cleartext copy of your password. We would consider this a security risk, so we don’t enable “secure passwords”. Because the connection to is encrypted anyway, these are not needed.
