Ah, thanks Mike, I was thinking that it was the peer on the other  
side of stunnel. I changed all the stunnel settings back (I'd been  
fiddling trying to get it to work) and it suddenly started working  
again. I think I must have restarted my Mail client or something to  
make its SSL kick in.

Thanks for your help,
