I just tell Avira e-mail scanner on which ports it has to listen (POP3: 110
/ IMAP: 143 / SMTP: 25).
I can't configure any IP - but this is not necessary, because as I mentioned
before: When configuring the e-mail client with an unencrypted and direct
connection to my mailprovider, Avira is able to scan the e-mails. So it
already listens on localhost.
I found that workaround here:
And Outlook & Thunderbird are listening on 127.0.0.1:110, 127.0.0.1:143,
127.0.0.1:25 ... it worked!!!
I think from the moment I installed stunnel as a service problems started.
The servive-daemon also told me, that there is no config (?!).
So I switched back to the "GUI Start" and now it doesn't work any more :-/

OK, I can change the listening ports (both in stunnel and/or Avira), but how
do I get them to work together then?
Sorry, I'am a litte bit confused now...

Well, this seem logical to me, but when I switch off the mail-scanner it
doesn't interrupt the fetching or sending, only when I stopt stunnel e-mails
can't be fetched or send any more. So it seems to me somehow the mail-client
connects directly to stunnel?

Yes, that's right.
