I'm a RR user in Raleigh, and I'm able to connect to 443 without any
problem to my machine at home.
I'm betting it's your workplace blocking outbound connects to port 443.
They don't want you reading email that they can't read too!
Choose a different port other than 443 if that turns out to be the case.
