Linux is free that's true, but it is also prefered for firewall/ssl/ssh
"blackbox" solutions.

I have not tested the other solutions from Kiwi or Barracuda.

The  main  problem I have with stunnel is that sometime the connection
between  client  and  stunnel  goes into timeout and then I must retry
multiple  times  until  stunnel  accept  the  conneciton or stop/start
stunnel  service.  I  have not yet investigated about this problem and
found  a workaround by scheduling an stunnel service's stop/start each
hour (for POP3 usage it's not a problem).

But  this is a personnal experience, I am not SSL or stunnel expert at
