I have been trying to receive my nsMail email using Evolution under Linux. I have tried numerous IMAP/POP/ settings with SSL/TLS
authentication without success. I have seen several message board threads that nsMail only supports an unencrypted connection (see
http://security.stackexchange.com/question...lutions-domains ).

How can this be possible in the post-Sony hacking world ?

Unencrypted email connections with the password exchanged in the clear went out in the '90s. Tell me it 'aint so !

You can use SSL/TLS with IMAP and SMTP

You will receive a certificate mismatch error because the SSL is for the server domain and not for customers individual domains but you can ignore this error.

IMAP - SSL - 993

SMTP - TLS - 587
