Indeed, I have been doing exactly that and it works great.  I run Solar
Designer's 'popa3d' on port 110 for those users which do not have
clients supporting TLS, but those who do are encouraged to use the
POP3/TLS running on port 995 which is really just an stunnel to port 110
on the same machine.  Outlook Express and many other clients have
built-in support for this so there is very little tech support overhead.
