For Port 465 'StartTLS Required' also works. It is what I use for Port 465 even though in the Outlook Client I use I specify TLS because there is no option for StartTLS in Outlook 2010.
Yes it works, it just isn't standard

The thing I think that you are missing is that the CE is the MS SQL, not MySQL
