The SSL Plugin is available at Source Forge, use the link below for a direct download after choosing your d/l site...

Double CLick the PopTrayPlugins_beta6.exe file.
Install to PopTray Directory. It should automatically create Plugins directory. If not, point the installer to the Plugins directory you have created.
