The available imap types correspond to the different connection, and security options used when connecting to the imap server.

The following options are supported:

imap: No encryption is used for the connection, but the IMAP server certificate is verified to be a valid certificate from a trusted certificate authority.

imapssl: SSL security is enabled, and the IMAP server certificate is verified to be a valid certificate from a trusted certificate authority.

imapcert: SSL security is enabled, but the IMAP server certificate is not verified.

imaptls: TLS security is enabled. The IMAP server certificate is verified to be a valid certificate from a trusted certificate authority. This is the most secure option.
