Hi Christian

Here is what I do in case you want to copy my approach for the moment. I 
too have not been able to run ssl successfully on my server ... 
especially from my phone of course from a browser is rather easy. So I 
decided that any request that is not port 443 and isn't 
server/Microsoft.... be redirect to the 443 port. In apache2 the rule 
should look something like.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{Server_Port} !^443$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^Microsoft.....$
RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://server.com/$1

Something like this (my memory isn't the best) is at least a temporary 
fix. But of course you should get ssl working.

Regards Alexander
