I recently upgraded from mail-client/balsa-2.5.3-r1 to mail-client/balsa-2.5.6-r1 because the openssl update pushed me in that direction.
I use pop3s to connect to a qmail mailserver and this new version of balsa says Authorization Denied.
K-9 Mail on Android works.
I've tried a self signed cert and a Letsencrypt cert.
Plain pop3 appears to work but I've not tested that over the internet :)
The easy route is to give up balsa but I've been using that for 20 years, so its become a habit.
Being old and cynical, it occurred to me that balsa might be doing something right and all the others doing something wrong.
Step 1 is narrow it down for diagnosis.
I'm pointing the finger at balsa as its the odd one out.
Any diagnostic hints please?

Digicerts SSL checker says that I've put all the bits together in the *.pem file correctly

The account that fails is the only one with spaces in the pass phrase.
I wonder if that is significant?
Computer users fall into two groups:-
those that do backups
those that have never had a hard drive fail.
