Yes - just enable SSL for the website and create a self-signed cert through ISPConfig, and afterwards you go to the website's ssl directory, delete the cert, key, csr, and create symlink with the same names to where you stored your StartSSL cert.

On the outgoing (where I'm having issues), I think I've tried every combination available for SSL/TLS, STARTTLS. At this point, my guess is the port isn't open. Per Thunderbird, the default port for SSL/TLS is 465, and STARTTLS is 587. Normal SMTP is 25.

The error message that I'm getting when I use SSL/TLS with default port of 465 is: This would make it appear that the ports are messed up. When I use STARTTLS, I get the same message.

Any ideas?
What's the output of
netstat -tap
? Any errors in your mail log?
