Yes. And according to the manual there should be two additional lines,
which I don't understand correctly:
machine imap.1und1.de login myloginname force yes
machine imap.web.de login mysecondloginname force yes
Are they neccessary? They don't affect this problem, however.

I did so, but I get a lot of entries that I don't understand. Are there
special lines I have to look at?
What a first view shows is, that 1und1 say something like "login auth",
while web.de answers something like "nonauth". Perhaps an authentification 
issue?
Can Emacs/Gnus automatically detect the auth mechanism? Thunderbird
obviously can.
