I have "disable plaintext_auth = no"

I don't want to disable plain text but I do have TLS as an option if
you wish to set up your client to use it. My question is how do I
force RC as the client to use TLS when users are connecting to
Dovecot? If I set 'plaintext_auth = no", then users who have no TLS
configuration in Outlook or Thunderbird fail to retrieve their email.
I don't want to do that. Just have the option of using it if it's
available (which it is).

My RC / Webmail server is not the same (localhost) as my IMAP (Dovecot) server.
