Mail (IMAP) connection for mailbox that doesn't support outbound emails?

We are looking to configure Boomi to receive emails from a mailbox that our client has purposely configured to not support outbound emails. If we use the standard Mail connector to perform a Get operation on this mailbox, we're able to retrieve emails from it. But if we use the IMAP connector to connect to the same mailbox and perform a retrieve operation, we encounter the following error:
"Error Test execution of [process name] completed with errors. Embedded message: +OK Dovecot ready."
We would like to use the IMAP connector instead of the standard Mail connector because we need to perform a move operation later in the process.
Is it possible to configure an IMAP Mail connection to a mailbox that doesn't support outbound emails? (The "Test Connection" button on our IMAP connection produces this error:
"Connection Failed; Caused by: OUTBOUND: Could not connect to SMTP host: localhost, port: 25 INBOUND: +OK Dovecot ready."
Screenshots of the IMAP and standard mail connections are below.
