I read all the relevant parts of the manual and tried a lot (too much to
list that here) without success. 

Therefor I asked for approaches to debug the case. I already tried a
non-nil nnimap-record-commands, but nothing in the "*imap log*" buffer,
nor the messages in the "*Messages*" buffer nor the output in the
related hidden " *server ..." buffer did help me.

Later, I learnd, that at least wanderlust (for which I was able to come
up with a working configuration for that IMAP account) complained about
that the certificate of the server doesn't match the server name (which
is correct) and I needed special configuration to make wanderlust to
ignore that.

So I followed up with the more specific question, if that certificate
problem may be the reason, why gnus refused to work with that account,
what I can do to verify this and, if possible, what to do to make it
work anyway.
