Sam and discussed this off-list.  I can't access my gmail account using
movemail either.  I enabled IMAP in google settings first.  After that
the command below should work, as far as I can see.

movemail -p 'imap://address@hidden'
         Test.mbox password

The connection times out.  I tried adding "--tls" and I tried converting
the dots in my email address to %2s.  I also tried putting the port at
the end of the imap URL, ":993", if I do that I get "Input/output error"
instead of a timeout.  Sam gets a different error "Invalid reply from
the remote host".

Does anyone know what the problem is here?
