Major Features:

Bounced Mail Handling: Once configured, it will (if so desired) automatically track and handle bounced mail. Alternatively, you can manually handle bounced mail if you so wish.

Automatic "Unsubscribe" Link Creation: If the user receiving the mail has access to unsubscribing, a secure link to unsubscribe themselves from the mailing list will be automatically added to the bottom of the mail. It does not require the user to be logged in, so it complies with spam policies set forth by mail providers.

Mail History: Each past sent mail can be viewed at any time from the front-end.

Advanced Subscription Management: Users can quickly and easily (un)subscribe from the mailing list via the mailing list directory, or the admin can manually change the subscription status in the AdminCP.

Bounced Mail Threshold: When an admin-configured number of mails bounce from the same email address, the user is automatically removed from mailing lists and all other email-related vBulletin features, and notified via PM what happened to their account, as well as directions to change their email addresses.

You can test it by manually sending an email to your bounce handler (use an email not connected to your forum, or create a new one off your server) then manually re-run the Collect Bounced Mail scheduled task - if it catches the email you should be good to go

IMAP settings used for vBMail are different than SMTP settings which you use to receive mail.

Can you show me a screenshot of your settings - redact the password, obviously.

Try the following alterations:
1. Set IMAP Host to localhost
2. Set IMAP Port to 993
3. Replace the @ in IMAP User Name with a +

Let me know if that works for you

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but I can't for the life of me get these emails to arrive. It says they're being sent, but nothing arrives. I get the other email notifications from the site just fine.

Do you have WHM on your server and access to it? If so, you can check for mail delivery reports.

Also, keep in mind that this uses vBulletin's mailqueue system, so you may just have a backlog that the cron job has not processed yet.

Is there any chance to put sending emails into background? I have almost 100 000 users on my forum and must wait over an hour with open tab to send emails for all of them... Or maybe an chance to speed it up?

It already is in the background, the page you see is not email sending but adding the emails to the queue

It's important that this is in the front-end so that any issues can be discovered.

I know that sending is in background, but this adding take so much time in that amount of users. Maybe there's an option to speed it up?
