IIRC, Outlook may not like the modern negotiated TLS, and instead want to 
use the informal "SMTPS", where the TLS connection is set up immediately.

Make sure the Outlook clients are using a port listed in your 
tls_on_connect_ports in the "main" part of your configuration.  IIRC, 465 is 
the most common port used for "SMTPS".
