What is it you expect the proxy to do?  You can use xinetd's
'redirect' feature to act as a proxy for about any tcp connection
without needing to know details of the protocol.  It should work
fine for pop or imap.  Or you can use stunnel to accept an ssl
connection and proxy to the unencrypted service.  This will
also work with most mail clients.
