[stunnel-users] Stunnel for secure email connections; email headers ?

I have been dabbling with Stunnel in order to do the following:
Connect with remote POP3, IMAP and SMTP servers using a secure connection;
Path those connections on my Windows XP desktop pc through Avast 
Anti-Virus and/or Popfile to Mozilla Thunderbird.

After much fiddling and grinding of my rusty mental muscles, I appear to 
have everything working and pathing properly. However I am not confident 
and some amount of luck has been involved in settling on the apparently 
correct pathing, ports settings and stunnel.conf

So, my question here is;
Can I look for anything in the email headers to verify that I am 
actually achieving a locally made secure connection using Stunnel? Or, 
if necessary, can I force something into the headers to show this?

As I imply, results/clues suggest all is in place correctly, but part of 
me doesn't really believe I have actually done it.

Thanks very much,
