        It appears that `open-protocol-stream' is being passed the
        stanza name/label by either the `nnimap-open-connection' or
        ``nnimap-open-connection-1' functions instead of the explicit
        specified value of "nnimap-address":

               "*nnimap*" (current-buffer) nnimap-address
               (nnimap-map-port (car ports))
               :type nnimap-stream

        The `open-protocol-stream' function is defined as:
        (open-protocol-stream NAME BUFFER HOST SERVICE &rest PARAMETERS)

        According to the backtrace, the HOST being passed to and used
        by `open-protocol-stream' is "aol":

open-protocol-stream("*nnimap*" #<buffer  *nnimap aol nil  *nntpd**-338562> 
"aol" "993" :type ssl

        However, this same backtrace shows

  nnimap-open-server("aol" ((nnimap-address "imap.aim.com")
  (nnimap-server-port 993) (nnimap-stream ssl)

        So why isn't [nnimap-address "imap.aim.com"] being used?
        It should be passed to `open-protocol-stream' by
        `nnimap-open-connection-1' (which gets it from

        In your setup, can you confirm that the "nnimap-address"
        address is being passed and used and NOT the stanza name/label
        in the functions `nnimap-open-connection',
        `nnimap-open-connection-1' and `open-protocol-stream'?
