pitty.

the uw-ipop3d (package imap) has ssl compiled in, no need to use wrappers.
you just have to add
pop3s stream tcp nowait.100 root /usr/sbin/ipop3d ipop3d
to /etc/inetd.con and make sure there is an entry
pop3s 995/tcp spop3 # pop3 protocol over TLS/SSL
in /etc/services.
there is a hint not to use tcpd wraper for this since it does not work, who
knows wy?

and you have to put your certificate/key into
/usr/src/openssl-0.9.6/certs/ipop3d.pem
in *contrast to what the docs say*, probably an packaging error (c)by suse...
but then it works.

hope that helps...
