Whether or not you use secure fetchmail is independent of whether you use IMAP or POP3... I use secure POP3 with fetchmail which I set up with fetchmailconf, and my stanza is:

poll techhouse.org with proto POP3
    user 'pretzalz' there with password '*******' is 'pretzalz' here ssl

Maybe you just need to add the ssl at the end?
