Hi~ I tried on my computer with openssl. It seems that you need the root
certificate of VeriSign. First I used openssl with the exactly same
options as you did and got:
> Verify return code: 20 (unable to get local issuer certificate)
However, I added the -CApath /etc/ssl/certs (Ubuntu 7.10 with
ca-certificates package installed.) Then the authentication looks OK:
> Verify return code: 0 (ok)
So I am thinking that you are lack of Root certificate of VerySign. I
agree with you that maybe it is not the point of the problem. But maybe
the issue because sometimes you don't know what the real reason for the
error is.

Frankly speaking, I doubt about this reason. If you use openssl you can
see that everything is paused waiting for the further IMAP commands
to be sent from the client. I don't know the detail mechanism for Gnus
since I used fetchmail instead of Gnus to get mails. But what I have
faced one week ago is I cannot let my postfix to relay on Gmail server
to send out any emails simply because of the certificate problem.
