DbxMda does not support SSL connections. I can suggest two alternatives to solve this problem:
1) Using MyDAC instead of DbxMda. MyDAC supports SSL connections.
2) Using SSH tunneling instead of SSL. You can use SecureBridge to make an SSH server and SSH client. Functionality of the SSH client can be embedded into your application.
