       Net::SSLGlue::POP3 - make Net::POP3 able to use SSL


           use Net::SSLGlue::POP3;
           my $pop3s = Net::POP3->new( $host,
               SSL => 1,
               SSL_ca_path => ...

           my $pop3 = Net::POP3->new( $host );
           $pop3->starttls( SSL_ca_path => ... );


       Net::SSLGlue::POP3 extends Net::POP3 so one can either start directly with SSL or switch
       later to SSL using the STLS command.

       By default it will take care to verify the certificate according to the rules for POP3
       implemented in IO::Socket::SSL.


       new The method "new" of Net::POP3 is now able to start directly with SSL when the argument
           "<SSL =" 1>> is given. In this case it will not create an IO::Socket::INET object but
           an IO::Socket::SSL object. One can give the usual "SSL_*" parameter of IO::Socket::SSL
           to "Net::POP3::new".

           If the connection is not yet SSLified it will issue the STLS command and change the
           object, so that SSL will now be used. The usual "SSL_*" parameter of IO::Socket::SSL
           will be given.

       peer_certificate ...
           Once the SSL connection is established the object is derived from IO::Socket::SSL so
           that you can use this method to get information about the certificate. See the
           IO::Socket::SSL documentation.

       All of these methods can take the "SSL_*" parameter from IO::Socket::SSL to change the
       behavior of the SSL connection. The following parameters are especially useful:

       SSL_ca_path, SSL_ca_file
           Specifies the path or a file where the CAs used for checking the certificates are
           located. This is typically "etc/ssl/certs" on UNIX systems.

           If set to 0, verification of the certificate will be disabled. By default it is set to
           1 which means that the peer certificate is checked.

           Usually the name given as the hostname in the constructor is used to verify the
           identity of the certificate. If you want to check the certificate against another name
           you can specify it with this parameter.
