IMO: Yes.

Excuse my potential ignorance:

I think I sent a (username, password) tuple to my SMTP server when
sending mails.  Why should I not care if it's encrypted?  If someone
snatched the password they'd be able to get to my IMAP, no?

In fact, in my setup, offlineimap talks to IMAP server, but Emacs talks
directly sents via the SMPT server.
