I am not sure.

I do know that on my mail app on the mac I am using a secure email sever (ssl) and I connect over port 465.

When I first synced to my iphone it brought over the email settings and it "just worked"

ask your boss if you can get pop type mail over a secure connection.

should work on the iphone.
What kind of a certificate do you use?  Is it one you purchased from a commercial CA like Verisign?  If so, those usually are included in the iPhone's trusted root CA list.  Is it is a self signed certificate (created by a CA you run) then you will need to get it on the iPhone, follow the advice from this forum to do so:
