I noticed that too. I just hit return each time, which appears to be
acceptable. I was also asked if I want to save the credentials to my
autoinfo file. I hit yes and got these two lines:

machine news.yhetil.org-ephemeral login XXXX port imaps
machine news.yhetil.org login XXXX port imaps

I have only blanked out my usual machine user name - I entered no password.

Works well, though.

Best wishes,

Colin.
