Client can't connect to SMTP

Mozmonkey
I've just installed Dovecot and Postfix and my email client (Mac Mail)
cannot authenticate with the SMTP server.  The error I receive says that
"The SMTP server doesn't support SSL (TLS) on port 465" -- yet, I've
installed SSL.  Is there any good way to test or debug this?

Setup:
 * SSL
 * Dovecot SASL
 * Dovecot LDA
 * Virtual Users (http://wiki.dovecot.org/HowTo/SimpleVirtualInstall)

Client SMTP Setup:
 * Use SSL
 * Port: 465
 * Authentication: Password

By the way, I followed these instructions:
http://wiki.dovecot.org/HowTo/SimpleVirtualInstall

Dovecot version: 1.0.13 (from source)
Postfix version: 2.5.1 (from source)
OS: Fedora Core 4

Here's are my config files:

465 is the obsolete "smtps". if you want it, you need to enable it in
master.cf (look for "smtps").

The standard is to use the STARTTLS command over whatever smtp port.
