It supports at least APOP, which does not send the password over the
net.

There isn't an SSL library for OCaml yet, so I would be surprized
if anyone could announce SSL. You can use external tools such as
stunnel (www.stunnel.org), which would be sufficient for POP. The
disadvantage is that do not have introspection into the details of
the SSL connection from O'Caml code.
