Need APOP or STLS support for Outlook 2007, PC, to receive mail from Qpopper pop3 server version 4.0.5

My company insists on using Qpopper pop3 server version 4.0.5 as the mail server.

I strongly desire to use Outlook 2007 and per the company's instruction have to set the incoming mail setting to use secure authentication.

When I select Outlook's Secure Password Authentication (SPA) selection I get the following response from the mail server:

-------------
Authorizing to server
[tx] AUTH
<rx> +OK Supported SASL mechanisms:
<rx> X-NONE-SO-USE-APOP-OR-STLS
<rx> .
Disconnecting from host
[tx] QUIT
-------------
I can send mail out fine with Outlook 07 just not receive.
I'm looking to see if there is any possibility to implement APOP or STLS to my Outlook 2007 mail client?
Im trying to make my Office 07 mail client work with our current mail server requirements.
Im not at all impressed with the Thunderbird client!
