But we can use Stunnel to run Becky with SSL.

Download stunnel-4.05.exe to C:\Program Files\Stunnel\

Download llibssl32.dll and libeay32.dll to C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32

Edit a file named stunnel.conf, save it to C:\Program Files\Stunnel

client = yes

accept = localhost:50110
connect = your.pop3s.server.domain.or.ip:995

accept = localhost:50143
connect = your.imap.server.domain.or.ip:993

Starting C:\Program Files\Stunnel\stunnel-4.05.exe
Starting Becky and modify(Mailbox Setup):
(1)Account-->Server Settings-->IMAP or POP Server : localhost
(2)Miscs-->Port Numbers-->POP3/IMAP4 : 50110 and 50143

Enjoy it!
