In Outlook and Outlook Express, you go to the Account Properties page,
select the Advanced tab, and Check "This server requires a secure connection
In Netscape 4.7x only IMAP over SSL is supported. Choose edit server
properties, go to the IMAP tab and select "Use Secure Connection (SSL)".
I don't know how to do it in any other mail program.

Giving this a try, it seems that it's all set up on our server here, but
is there something to be done with setting up the clients to use SSL?
