Right, I had done that:

The doc really isn't clear about why you'd want/need these, by the way.

But your earlier suggestion (localhost instead of seems to have worked. Still a mystery. I'll be tinkering on machine2 tonight, and then will try on the wife's machine!

The stunnel(8) manual has this.
"protocol = PROTO
    application protocol to negotiate TLS
    This option enables initial, protocol-specific negotiation of the TLS encryption."
Is there any need for protocol-specific negotiation?  Why?  Stunnel 
provides a tunnel and POP3 works inside.  That's all.  Try the 
configuration without the protocol option.
