Openssl is really unhelpful when it comes to error messages.
You could try to connect manually and see whether openssl and your mail
server are able to negotiate a protocol (and which one that would be)

openssl s_client -connect your-ip-here:993 -state -debug 

Does it get connected using tls?
Otherwise, I am afraid I am not the best person to help with SSL issues.
