Secure outgoing email with SSL

I currently work for a bank, so security is paramount.

I'm trying to secure outgoing email from our fax machines to our email host, rackspace. On a normal client, I would simply turn on ssl, and everything is fine. However, our fax machines do not support ssl. How would I go about encrypting the normal smtp traffic so that it is using ssl before it leaves my network? Could I use postfix on a server somehow? maybe stunnel?

I attached a simple network diagram of what I'm trying to do.

technically I guess it could work, but i already have the hardware, and would rather not invest any more into this project. Besides, I would still have to research the company's financials for regulatory requirements.

Is there any way I can do this myself? I can figure it out if someone could point me in the right direction.
