The key thing to note is that the SSL VH must be unique at the TCP/IP layer. That is, it must
use a unique IP & port combination. The simplest way to achievet this is to put the port
number on all tags containingIPs, eg:

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VH *:80>
  ServerName www.example1.com
  DocumentRoot /example1

<VH *:80>
  ServerName www.example2.com
  DocumentRoot /example2

<VH *:443>
  ServerName www.example2.com  <-- not really necessary with SSL
  DocumentRoot /example2

Now the name-virtual hosting only works on port 80 and anything coming in on port 443 is uniquely
assigned to the SSL VH.

Since all your domains resolve to the same IP, they will all end up in the SSL VH and serve
example2. NB - Remember that you can't do name-based VHs with SSL.
