How can I select IMAP for incoming mail handler

I'm following the instructions on to try and set up an IMAP server for JIRA to read emails and create issues from them. According to the docs I should see an IMAP option, but all I see is POP. Anyone know why?

Hi Tim,

The options displayed, relates directly to the configured mail servers in the section above, "POP / IMAP Mail Servers"

From the displayed options, it appears the mail server is configured to fetch mail using pop3 and not using imap.
