SparkPost integration via TLS?


After all the posting about Amazon SES and the troubles getting it going (and keep it going), I've decided to try another Email provider: SparkPost. SparkPost allows 100,000 free emails every month, after that you pay at a price that is about double what it costs for Amazon SES, but if it works and some of the other issues are not there, it is worth it.

SparkPost allows SMTP connection for sending directly on it's: server.  You use standard Auth Login ID, and Password.

The only catch is that SparkPost requires TLS support to make that connection, and I cannot get that to work properly in ListMailPRO.   I've tried updates to the Editconf.php file, just to see if I can connect to TLS on port 567, and every time I try, I get this error:
SSL operation failed with code 1. OpenSSL Error messages: error:1408F10B:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_RECORD:wrong version number in /home/mydomain/public_html/mail/editconf.php on line 1917
Could not say EHLO.

The SMTP server is not configured correctly. Check your settings.

Notice how it is always 'wrong version number', so I asked my host to configure me back to OpenSSL version 1.x, hoping that would solve the problem, it does not.

Does anyone have any idea how to get this running?  Has anyone ran LMP with SparkPost?
