HTTPS submission?

http index page redirects to https index

Hello All,
I am helping to promote a site on the major search engines for a friend. Ive been manually submitting for a couple of months with no success. I think this is down to the way he has structured his site. He has a [hisdomain.com...] - with all relevent meta tags and title, immeditately redirecting to a [hisdomain.com...] where the site begins. All his pages are secure. I would be right in saying that search engines ignore https pages when crawling. Therefore I have only the one url to submit, because I cant submit any of the https links.
Could this be a reason for not being listed?
