This is as expected.
Your mail client opens a socket which gets (presumably implicitly)
bound to an arbitrary TCP port (1878 and 1882 in the examples above).
It then connects to port 110, the one stunnel bound the listening
Each IP connection has two ends and thus two pairs of IP address and
port number. In your case, both, client and server use 127.0.0.1 as
IP address, which may be the source of the confusion.
