[stunnel-users] HTTPS being redirected back to HTTP

I have tested several versions of stunnel up to version 4.21 on SLES 9 and 
10.  I am trying to use stunnel to implement TLS 1.0 for HTTPS on a Lotus 
Domino server.  I am able to connect to the Domino server with a web 
browser with HTTPS successfully.  However, once I log into the server it 
drops me back down to HTTP.  I suspect the Domino server is sending a 
redirect back to HTTP during the login because if I change the URL back to 
HTTPS in the browser after the login, it re-establishes the HTTPS 
connection.   I've checked with Lotus support and there is nothing that 
can be done on the Domino server to prevent this.  Is there anyway to 
handle this in stunnel so that the requests remain as HTTPS requests to 
the browser? 

Here is the services section of my stunnel.conf

sslVersion = TLSv1
accept  = gsvatestm02.er.usgs.gov:443
connect = gsvatestm02.er.usgs.gov:80
TIMEOUTclose = 0
