problems with email/ssl and t-online.de/telekom.de

on 5 Nov I received an email from my provider telekom.de
informing me that I use an insecure connection for my emails
and that from start of 2014 on ssl is required.
For my emails I use sendmail and getmail (and mutt/vi) so
I think ssl should be supported.
I changed the type from SimplePOP3Retriever to SimplePOP3SSLRetriever
in my $HOME/.getmail/getmailrc:
| type = SimplePOP3SSLRetriever
| server = popmail.t-online.de
| username = ...
| password = ...
but with this I get only
| getmailrc: socket error ([Errno 61] Connection refused)
I described this in a detailed email to telekom.de (twice)
but didn't get any answer.
Can anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong or explain
to me what I should do instead.
thanks in advance
