[techtalk] POP mail security

All my users use fetchmail to get mail from my ISP's POP server.
For lack of resources, I cannot put a pop server on my box.

What is the best way to protect my users passwords from being sniffed?
Can a user use an encrypted tunnel to send the userid and password to
the pop server?

Any pointers and experiences appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
