The stupid question is the question not asked

Why does one _not_ need a SSL version of Net::POP3?

sg has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I can _successfully_ use Net::SMTP::SSL to send mail via Yahoo!'s SMTP server with SSL and authentication on port 465.

Sending using Yahoo!'s SMTP server fails using just Net::SMTP.

However, I can collect mail from Yahoo!'s POP3 server using just Net::POP3 -- even though Yahoo! says I need to use SSL on port 995 to pop. So the question is: why do I not need something like Net::POP3::SSL?
