Yes, it is, but pop3s uses a different port than pop3. Try netstat -ltnp 
on your server :)
pop3+tls is the recommended way of doing encryption now, which uses the 
same port as pop3 (110) but has a special STLS (I think) command to 
"upgrade" an unencrypted connection to a secure one.

Just change that to
pop3s_listen =
and you should be fine completely if you want to continue using pop3s. 
If you want to switch to pop3+tls then you don't need pop3s at all.
