Problems while stunneling POP3

Hi *!

This night I tried to enable SSL tunneling (stunnel-3.8-1) for my POP3
clients with the default stunnel.cnf. I get following in /var/log/messages:

Dec 12 05:25:22 localserver xinetd[4218]: Started working: 4 available
services
...
Dec 12 05:25:34 localserver stunnel[4219]: stunnel started
Dec 12 05:25:34 localserver stunnel[4219]: getpeerbyname: Transport endpoint
is not connected (107)
Dec 12 05:25:34 localserver stunnel[4219]: stunnel finished (0 left)

My client is MS Outlook 2000 (SP1), I enabled encrypted password
transmission and secure POP3-Server on port 995!

Entry in xinetd.conf:
service pop3s
{
flags = REUSE NAMEINARGS
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/stunnel
server_args = stunnel -D 7 -p /etc/stunnel/stunnel.pem -l
/usr/sbin/popper
}

Entry in /etc/services:
pop3s 995/tcp # pop3 protocol over TLS/SSL (was spop3)

Any ideas?

Tired, Boris.
