[stunnel-users] stunnel and TLS1.2 for IE

Hello.
 
I have successfully configured my email client (Outlook 2010) to my provider
with TLS1.2 via stunnel running as a service.
config:
 
debug = 5
engine = capi

[freenet-pop3s]
client = yes
EngineID = capi
accept = localhost:2110
connect = mx.freenet.de:995

[freenet-smpts]
client = yes
EngineID = capi
accept = localhost:2025
connect = mx.freenet.de:465
 
That was no problem.
 
But at this point I am wondering if it is possible and how I can configure
stunnel so that "all" https traffic from Internet Explorer is going through
stunnel and connect to internet with highest secure level supported.
Not only to one specific server (connect = xyz.net) but to all servers given
in IE address.
 
By now I guess that I have to set IE so that it uses a https-proxy at
"localhost:xxx" with stunnel config "accept = localhost:xxx".
But how is stunnel config for "connect x.x.x.x:443" that it connect to the
right server in internet I specified in IE address line?
 
Can someone give me a hint?
Or impossible?
 
Thanks a lot
 
Thomas
