Start pop3s and imaps services in dovecot.conf v2.1.9

Start pop3s and imaps services in dovecot.conf v2.1.9

Hi,

I need to open Doveot pop3s and imaps services.

I use the following guide to start those services but when I change the dovecot.conf v2.1.9 file the service will not start.

Please take a look in the attached configuration.

After starting the pop3s and imaps services I would like to close imap and pop3 services.

What changes should I do in dovecot.conf v 2.1.9 to stop pop3 and imap services ?

How can I start pop3s and imaps and close pop3 and imap services ?
What Dovecot configuration file will I need to use

I set my email client Apple Mail v 4.5 to connect with port 995 using SSL (Auth password)

I check and seams that Dovecot hasn´t a service for port 995 , but my email client could connect and download email.

I don´t understand why my email client could connect and download emails even if the port 995 is not open.
Why ?

tcp 0 0 :::587 :::* LISTEN –
tcp 0 0 :::2222 :::* LISTEN –
tcp 0 0 :::80 :::* LISTEN –
tcp 0 0 :::465 :::* LISTEN –
tcp 0 0 :::9876 :::* LISTEN –
tcp 0 0 :::21 :::* LISTEN –
tcp 0 0 :::443 :::* LISTEN –

Thanks in advance for your help.
