Since it might just as well be a Thunderbird configuration problem, try
with openssl directly:

openssl s_client -connect localhost:995

If it works, try remotely the same in case it's a firewall problem. If
that works too, it's just a Thunderbird problem.

I hope you've never actually tried to use this "ssl_listen = *:110"
setting? pop3s is in port 995.
