The Remote SMTP Service Does Not Accept TLS Requests

I have added an SSL certificate to my server to add TLS communication between me and another domain. I followed all of the steps in this document( http://www.networkworld.com/news/2007/011807-tls4.html ) and followed them well. I have created another SMTP connector for this domain using that document. The problem is now the emails are queued under Exchange system manager > First Admin Group > Servername > Queues. Under the name of the SMTP connector I get the message " The remote SMTP service does not accept TLS requests" It's at this point that I've hit a wall and cannot figure this out yet. The emails are being routed through the connector fine, just not going through to the host. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Are you sure the other domain's server is configured for TLS?  The error message seems to imply that it's not.

It's a fairly large insurance company that is requiring us to use this so I would think so. I do agree that it would sound from that error message as it's not working on their end?

Can you contact someone on that end to see if they require some sort of crazy configuration?

The document they sent me and their ip's are all I have gotten. I've got an email into them, but I don't know how technical the guy will be. Is there any way to test tsl?

Anyone else have any guidance on this? The company really needs to get emails through TLS to them and I am unsure where to turn at this point.

Turns out the problem was on our cisco asa. If someone else has this problem there are known issues to troubleshoot.
