just don't break you configuration and blindly disable SSLv3
and you don't need a workaround for your own mistake

the other site don't support anything better than SSLv3

as first step you need to understand that you don't make
anything better in case of opportunistic TLS if you disable
ciphers and protocols left and right because you obviously
missed that it ends in connections from other servers falling
back to unencrypted connections if there is no suiteable
cipher both sides supporting or as in your case if you
disable a protocol the otehr side needs to connect it fails

you made that problem by add !SSLv3
solve it the same way by remove that
