I just tried. It detected the SMTP settings, but not IMAP. If you want to try one more time, here are the settings that are working for me:

Disconnected IMAP
Login: Your full email address (youremail@... or youremail@...)
Password: Your password
Port: 993
Optional settings: Store IMAP Password, Show only serverside subscription, Include in manual checking, Enable interval checking
Security: Use SSL, Clear text

Port: 587
Server requires authentication
Login: your email address from your IMAP settings
Password: Your password
Optional: Store password
Encryption: TLS, Plain
