Can someone point me to an example of reading email from a server
using POP and SSL?

I think the ruby gmail library (see rubyforge, if it’s up) does this.

I believe that the gmail lib uses net/https for doing its work. I don’t
think 1.8.x pop3 lib can do SSL (without you manually setting up the
socket)
but the pop3 lib from CVS can. If you work at it, you can pull that
into
1.8.4 and use it by renaming some things.

I was trying to do a similar thing a while back, and found someone
who’d already had the same problem and solved it for me.
