SSL3_GET_RECORD:wrong version number:s3_pkt.c:284

Where I work they're going to switch from ordinary imap to
imap via ssl.
So I need to get kmail or thunderbird to talk to the imap server
with port 993. I did the setup but thunderbird says upon
trying to use the connection:

imap.jhuapl.edu has sent an incorrect or unexpected message Error code: -12263

I then made sure to put in a firewall entry to allow tcp:993 through to make sure
that wasn't the problem, same thing.

Then someone suggested testing the ssl connection with:

openssl s_client -ssl3 -state -debug -msg -connect imap.jhuapl.edu:993

And then I got this (quoted just the end part where I think the problem is):
SSL_connect:SSLv3 write client hello A
read from 0x92d1118 [0x92d6d28] (5 bytes => 5 (0x5))
0000 - 2a 20 42 59 45 * BYE
write to 0x92d1118 [0x92e0e50] (7 bytes => -1 (0xFFFFFFFF))
>>> ??? [length 0002]
02 28
SSL3 alert write:fatal:handshake failure
SSL_connect:error in SSLv3 read server hello A
6188:error:1408F10B:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_RECORD:wrong version number:s3_pkt.c:284:
I've got no idea what this means, I've googled this and found people asking
about this but no one showed a solution I could figure out.
The openssl this system is using is openssl-0.9.8g-9.fc9.i686
and the OS is Fedora 9 i686. Thanks for any ideas.
