GWIA SSL SMTP connections are not working with external clients.
Microsoft Outlook Client doesn't, can't, or is unable to connect to GWIA SMTP over SSL.
With SSL Enabled - It tries to connect to the GWIA server, checks if TLS is enabled and then disconnects and does not do anything.
With SSL Required - It does a three way handshake and then does not do anything.
