Gnus configuration to connect IMAP server?

I'm using emacs 24.5.1 on linux.

Up to now I used gnus just for an nntp feed and, as
gnus-secondary-select-methods, gmane.

I'm trying to add an IMAP account as another
gnus-secondary-select-methods.

The IMAP server is working; I'm able to access the IMAP account with
thunderbird.

I've tried all kind of configurations, starting from simple up to
spelling out all kind of parameters, but no fun. E.g.

(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods '((nntp "news.gmane.org")
                                      (nnimap "umkehrbar"
                                              (nnimap-stream starttls)
                                              (nnimap-address "xxx.de")
                                              (nnimap-user "address@hidden")
                                              (nnimap-inbox "INBOX"))))

The *Messages* buffer tells me things like 

"Opening nnimap server on umkehrbar...failed: BAD Invalid characters in atom"

that doesn't help much.

I'm able to talk to the IMAP server on the cmd line:

address@hidden:~> gnutls-cli -s -p imap xxx.de
Processed 149 CA certificate(s).
Resolving 'xxx.de'...
Connecting to 'ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd:143'...
|<1>| Note that the security level of the Diffie-Hellman key exchange has been 
lowered to 512 bits and this may allow decryption of the session data

What can I do to debug the problem?

Thanks
