qmail ssl and smtp not working together

i used the qmailrocks guide to get everything running. It runs great with regular ol pop and smtp but i want to do it over SSL (call me crazy) i found a topic on qmailrocks forums about it and pop3s works great! i did the same thing for smtp and it doesn't want to work. Im using outlook 2003 as my mail client.

here is my stunnel_smtpd.conf
cert = /var/qmail/control/servercert.pem
exec = /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd
execargs = qmail-smtpd /home/vpopmail/bin/vchkpw
and my run file
/usr/local/bin/tcpserver -p -v -R -l 0 -x /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb \
-u98 -g98 -v -c100 0 465 \
/usr/sbin/stunnel /var/qmail/control/stunnel_smtpd.conf 2>&1
if i just try to ./run it give me
tcpserver: fatal: unable to bind: address already used
but it does that under the pop3 section too.

22/tcp  open  ssh
37/tcp  open  time
80/tcp  open  http
106/tcp open  pop3pw
113/tcp open  auth
465/tcp open  smtps
993/tcp open  imaps
995/tcp open  pop3s
if i try to telnet to localhost 465 it says it connects and then kicks me out.
telnet localhost 465
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
any advice??
btw this is a slackware 10.2 fresh install.
