Yes indeed, that's also a resort. But I would like the minimalist solution ;-)
Which is, stunnel provides ssl security plus (small) firewall for pop3.

Also, I have the impression from the documentation that stunnel advertises to be
able to provide this functionality. Maybe I've hit a bug in stunnel?
Debian has a similar bug report #626856.
I could provide further information on the problem I encounter, if required.
Best regards,
