I think your server did encounter another server which is not "modern" enough.

Here [1] is the manual how to set what is acceptable for CG Pro. I have mine set to SSLv3 (which is, if I am not mistaken, the oldest version of SSL/TLS, all TLSv1.x being newer).

Probably the only possibilities you have are
(a) ask the receiving party to update their mail servers
(b) use an intermediary server which can talk to "older" mail server implementations to deliver your messages.
