Thanks for the suggestion Thomas, but no dice, and I suspect so since it
worked before.  Two things now, looking at my users table in my DB I have
two 'phil' entires:

|       1 | phil     | pepe.cryer.us |       | 2005-12-12 10:14:50 |
2006-04-11 12:25:02 | en_US    | a:5:{s:8:"timezone";d
r_html";b:1;s:10:"prettydate";b:1;s:10:"dst_active";b:1;} |

|       4 | phil     | localhost     |       | 2006-04-03 09:39:15 |
2006-04-03 09:39:15 | en_US    |

ah, notice that first one created last dec -- yeah, I'm old school with RC!

also, I turned log on to trace and tried to login and now I get:

IMAP Error: Authentication for phil failed (LOGIN): "a001 NO Plaintext
authentication disabled."

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent in
on line 121

So it looks like IMAP is the issue - I haven't messed with Dovecot
recently (afaik) but I'll take a look.  don't really understand the
doublespeak of :

NO Plaintext authentication disabled.

So plaintest auth is disabled...so only encrypted?  I'm running via SSL -
but perhaps within the server it's trying to login plain..hmm..
