Bad request: The IMAP server is reporting that plain text logins are disabled. Using CRAM-MD5 or DIGEST-MD5 authentication instead may work. Also, the use of TLS may allow SquirrelMail to login. Please contact your system administrator and report this error.

As it says , plaintext authentication disabled. Enable that on your IMAP server or check on squirrelmail website if you can do a CRAM-MD5 or DIGEST-MD5 authentication or TLS using a plugin.

The current debian testing squirrelmail package doesn't migrate the config to the current version. You can:
{
move away the old /etc/config.php *
run /etc/squirrelmail/conf.pl (symlink to /usr/sbin/squirrelmail-configure)
hit reload on the squirrelmail page where you got the error.
} or {
make sure that "$imap_auth_mech = 'cram-md5';" is in /etc/config.php
}

* squirrelmail-configure doesn't seem to parse an existing config.php . If this seems broken to you, you can always fix it. I was just barely ambitious enough to mention it here.
