Description

There are two reports that POPFile can't connect POP3 servers via SSL:

I've tried to connect these servers using Windows version and failed.

Mac OS X version does not have this issue.

It seems that the cause is the SSL modules (IO::Socket::SSL and Net::SSLeay) are too old (Windows version uses 1.13 and 1.36. Mac OS X version uses 1.44 and 1.36).

When I replace these modules with newer versions (1.960 and 1.55), the problem disappeared.

I think we need to update these modules to more latest ones!
