[stunnel-users] Dynamic hosts

I have just set up stunnel to allow unsecured client pop3 connections  
to my secured pop3 server

chroot = /stunnel/
pid = /stunnel.pid

setuid = www
setgid = www

client = yes
accept = localhost:10110
connect = mail.clearimageonline.com:995

And it works as expected.

Is there a way to set it up so it can dynamically connect to any server.

Something like...

connect = *:995

I was able to start a new instance of stunnel with a separate config  
file but this seems inefficient as it starts up 6 processes each time.  
What I would like to do is dynamically add/subtract servers that it  
can connect to.

My goal here is to build a webmail client that can use stunnel to do  
the secure connections to either POP or IMAP servers. My client  
software uses unsecured sockets.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
