Set `auth-source-debug' to t and show the resulting lines from
*Messages*.  Also show the lines from the authinfo file that you think
should work.  IIRC the port needs to be 143 or 993 in some cases but I'm
not sure; the log will tell us that.

(Passwords should be automatically hidden in *Messages*, but please
check before sending.)

In general I'd say please use the latest Gnus even if you can't use the
latest Emacs.  That has the latest auth-source.el as well.  It's quite
easy to just upgrade Gnus and there's been a LOT of improvements in Gnus
since 23.2.
