I think you only want :starttls. :ssl tells it to expect a socket that immediately negotiates SSL; the error suggests the mail server doesn't. (Note that, because SSL is negotiated immediately, it must use different ports; in general, a mail server that supports SSL uses port 465 instead of 25, because it can't do SSL and non-SSL on the same port.)

Also, SSL as such isn't used that much beyond HTTPS. Modern mail servers are more likely to use negotiated encryption (STARTTLS) instead. So just :starttls and not :ssl.

If I remove the :ssl and leave :starttls, it just hangs

Tears.
