That being the case, what are the browser-specific SSL options you
currently have in your configuration for MSIE clients?  

You should definitely be using OpenSSL 0.9.7a - it's the latest recommended

As per the FAQ entry I pointed at, it's not weird at all.  MSIE has a lot
of quirks in its SSL implmentation - some related to its support for
particular ciphers, others to nonstandard behaviour it expects to find when
talking to the server.

I would go so far as to claim that it is not possible for a "vanilla" SSL 
configuration (ie, one without user-agent specific options) to work with 
a "vanilla" IE installation - so the exact configuration you are running is
quite important.
