After configuring Workflow Notification Mailer for IMAP SSL (INBOUND_SSL_ENABLED=Y), without SMTP SSL (OUTBOUND_SSL_ENABLED=N), the following error occurs in the Workflow notification log:

 javax.mail.MessagingException: No login methods supported

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Configure Inbound EMail Account (IMAP) for Workflow Notification Mailer.
2 Ensure SSL certificate of OWA was imported to cacerts and the certificate is also placed $OA_JRE_TOP/lib/security
3 Ensure SSL Handshake works fine and completes the whole cycle when done from unix prompt using $AFJVAPRG as per <Note 985372.1>
