A good idea, thanks! However, for a first try, I slightly modified the
Mew source code. It works now. But, it seems that I don't like Mew that
much... ;-)

Anyway, I also had to change source code which originally added some
options to the mew configuration file, and those options are not
supported by stunnel for Windows:


Would've been helpful if stunnel simply ignores these options on
Windows. Instead, it displays error messages: "Specified option name is
not valid here"

There is no tray icon after executing "stunnel -version". I had to close
it using the Windows Task Manager.
