    Have you tried that? If this works there are two question?
    - Is stunnel hijacking the certificate
    - Is the MUA reacting with error messages?

    Gmail already uses extensive file extension filtering and virus scanning. Anything that manages to get through will be scanned by EMON or AMON. Are there any other mail provider that support ssl and do not scan for file extensions or viruses?

    I prefer to know that the files are infected, or contains phishing, before I open it.
    Even if it is only on the Junk mail that I never open...

    I don't know...

    From what I can tell from reading, stunnel redirects the requests on the regular port to the SSL port on the appropriate host. More of a translator I would think, kinda a middle man approach. stunnel performs the SSL connection and then routes it to your MUA via standard POP3.

    So when it is being routed via POP3 NOD32 is then able to scan the unencrypted information for you before it reaches the MUA.
