There's no reason for me to offer IMAPS or POP3S to localhost (because of the certificate issue) and there's also no reason for me to offer POP3 to localhost either.

I don't think you can do that. However if you don't want to use tls/ssl
just connect to port 143 plain.
I don't know about horde but Roundcube you use tls://localhost,
ssl://locahost or just localhost.
i.e the choice is with the client not the server.
