You either mean ssh (secure shell), which is used with the above syntax:
ssh -L 25:myserver:25 myserver
You want to use stunnel and forward requests to port 995 on your server to
the local port 110: stunnel has to be configured in /etc/inetd.conf like
pop3s stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/stunnel stunnel -r localhost:110
(you may need to install and start inetd as it is not installed per
Secure mail transfer is a bit trickier, because it always uses port 25.
At least it is a good idea trying to use encryption, even if you have
problems to configure it!
