Default Issues securing Webmail with SSL Certificate

My webmail client (squirrelMail) is working perfect, but I would like to run it over https. The url for the web mail client is webmail.domain.com. I had a SSL certificate built by a Certificate Authority (godaddy) for this URL. In ISPConfig, I enabled SSL for this site. I also copied the certificate into the SSL Certificate box and saved the certificate. I opened port 443 on my firewall. But when I go the website httpS://webmail.domain.com, the browser hits me with a pop saying, "webmail.domain.com has sent an incorrect or unexpected message."

I did a little research and I found I have to copy the certificate, intermediate certificate and key file onto the server and edit the ssl.conf file to point the SSLCertificateFile, SSLCertificateKeyFile and SSLCertificateChainFile variables to the correct path. I looked in the /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf directory and didn't find a ssl.conf file. I did a search for ssl.conf and found two (/etc/apache2/mods-available/ssl.conf, /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/ssl.conf). In both of these files there is no sections for any of these variables. Should I create a ssl.conf and put in the /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf or edit one or both of the existing ssl.conf? Or is there a way this can be handled through the ISPConfig control panel? Thanks in advance for any help.
