HOWTO Use Stunnel with POPFile

Obtain and install Stunnel,

  • Create a config file for stunnel as per normal plus this:
    accept =
    connect = your.mail.server:995
  • Start stunnel, make sure it does not die. If you have problems add 'debug=7' to the above config file and fix any problems it reports.
  • Test it using telnet:
    telnet 210
  • You should get a welcome message from the pop server, if you get nothing or it dies, … trouble time. Go back and check your configuration over.
