[stunnel-users] Getting Stunnel working with Verizon.net SMTP

I can't seem to connect with email at Verizon.net SMTP.   I  can connect with POP3.

The Stunnel.log shows:
2013.06.11 19:27:04 LOG5[3752:2524]: stunnel 4.56 on x86-pc-msvc-1500 platform
2013.06.11 19:27:04 LOG5[3752:2524]: Compiled/running with OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11

2013.06.11 19:27:04 LOG5[3752:2524]: FIPS mode is enabled
2013.06.11 19:27:04 LOG5[3752:2524]: Configuration successful

I have IPv6 turned off in my network settings.

The Stunnel.conf looks like this:
output = stunnel.log
cert = stunnel.pem
options = NO_SSLv2
client = yes
accept = 11014
connect = pop.verizon.net:995
delay    = yes

client = yes
accept = 11015
connect = smtp.verizon.net:465
delay    = yes

I do not have SSL turned on in my email client.  
The log from my email client looks like this:

--- Tue, 11 Jun 2013 16:38:55 ---
Connect to 'localhost' port 10115, timeout 60.
16:38:56.897 15: Peer connect failure (the host has refused the connection).

The Verizon account is FIOS.  I am not connected directly to the Verizon ISP.
I can't send email without SSL.

Does anyone have any idea how I can get this working?
