We change the port to 993 for all existing IMAP accounts when TorBirdy
is installed, and this is also the default value for accounts that you
create with the manual account configuration wizard.

Did you change the ports yourself? If yes, then the error message is
expected and you should not be doing this -- see Roger's reply above.

If you did not change the port number, this is unexpected behavior,
please file a bug.
