Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
You should be able to, using the Advanced Integration method, set up an SSL requiring email account. See this procedure for the advanced integration process:
KB02189 Associate email accounts with your BlackBerry Internet Service account
You may actually have to force it to fail the automated integration by using a dummy email address. That way, you will be able to get to the screens that will allow you to enter the https URL of the mail server, which should then allow you to integrate the account. You will need all settings as you will be entering everything manually, but it indeed should work.
Give that a try and let us know.

Have a look at the below KB article, there is some good info in it for integrating OWA. Do you know if your company is running an ISA server?

Are you using the browser or trying to integrate using BIS?
Does anyone else in your organization have this setup on their device? It may be an issue with the security features on your exchange server. Your best options is going to be to contact your carrier and have them escalate the case to RIM so that they can talk to you and investigate as to why you are not able to integrate.

Unfortunately they are no longer actively supporting the OWA method, which is why I was trying to use the standard exchange mail server configuration. Is RIM not going to support SSL to an email server connectionon the initial configuration or am I missing that somewhere? The only way I see to set SSL is to already have an email connection and then modify it to add SSl to the email server connection, which seems somewhat backwards to me.

If OWA has been disabled then the only other way to integrate this would be through POP or IMAP, both POP and IMAP support SSL, but these port would need to be opened on the server.

OWA is not disabled, just not actively supported (so it may as well be disabled in my case). I tried configuring using the IE addon which tries to extract email addresses from Outlook, but the addin crashes, causing IE to crash, so I can't do that either. That leaves what you suggested, but unless I can set SSL on when entering the email server information, the configuration fails. Do you know if RIM is ever planning on providing that option during the configuration process? I can't seem to find a way to do that now that BIS is involved. I don't remember if I had the option of doing that before I created a Blackberry email account and added my first email connection to Verizon directly.
