We have a Exchange Server 2003 with a valid certificate. I am trying to enable  "Require a secure channel (SSL)" in IIS->Websites->>Default Website->Directory Security, our email clients cannot connect.

Is there an additional configuration I need to carry out?Is there a way to check from the workstation that Outlook/Entourage is using SSL/TLS other than enabling it on the email client configuration?

All that option does is require SSL connection. It does nothing else.
Furthermore, on Exchange 2003 you have no way of configuring the clients from the server.
As such, if you find that when you enable that option client don't connect, then they cannot be configured to use SSL connections and you would have to reconfigure each client.
