As I understood it, SSL meant a tunneled connection over SSL/TLS, using the relevant port (995/pops, 993/imaps, 465/smtps, 636/ldaps). TLS means STARTTLS over a normal connection, so usually using the standard port (110/143/25/389). It's still quite confusing, especially since SSL is called TLS now since quite some time.
