[CentOS] dovecot disconnect(s)

Hi, I've got a problem with dovecot regarding a pop3 proxy issue.
When I configure a dovecot server to do just plain pop3 I can telnet
from a windows box without any flaw, but as soon as the client uses some
pop3 proxy (for example outlook uses avira antivir Mail-AntiVirus
Protection), queries to that server fail. A log line looks like this:

pop3-login: Dec 05 22:53:24 Info: Disconnected [::ffff:]

Moreover with the proxy activated, a telnet to port 110 (pop3) is not
working properly, the cursor stays right behind "+OK dovecot ready." and
as soon as I enter a character, the server rejects this character as an
unknown command. As soon as I turn off the Antivir-Proxy the telnet to
port 110 runs flawlessly and I can login.
Is there any fix for that? Or did I misunderstand something?
TIA for any hint
