Hmm, I've already tried that proxy together with uw-imapd and I 
succeeded in getting mails, it seems that there's an issue in the 
communication between that specific proxy and that specific pop3 server 
dovecot. I also tried pgp desktop as a pop3 proxy and that worked perfectly.

Maybe the issue is related to the fact that dovecot is located on a xenU 
domain, the rest is a pretty basic CentOS-4.4 installation.
