Hi Ivan,

Check your virus scanner.

It's perfectly o.k. to have stunnel listening on 127.0.0.1:110 and the
mail client connecting from 127.0.0.1 using an arbitrary port.

Again, each IP connection has two ends, each of which is characterized
by IP address and port number.  I your example, this is

  (mail client) 127.0.0.1:1878 ---> 127.0.0.1:110 (stunnel)

This is how IP is designed to work.

It does not conflict.  Stunnel works as expected, but your virus
scanner doesn't work.  Maybe it stopped intercepting traffic on
localhost (but that's a wild guess).

HTH,
