Well, I'm stunned (pun intended): while the output= wasn't accepted (it said it wasn't valid there), changing 127.0.0.1 to localhost seems to have fixed it!

Here it worked for POP3 immediately.  Not needed for SMTP.

Before using 1110, check.
netstat -tulpn | grep 1110

Correct id, passwd and port are in the MUA? 

Separate configurations for POP3 and SMTP.  Troubleshoot one at a time.
"protocol" shouldn't be necessary.  Try this.

[POP3]
client = yes
output = C:\temp\stunnel-log.txt
accept = localhost:1110
connect = pop.cox.net:995
