Switching sending to port 26


Question: Will your Email Security have the ability to choose a different port for sending, such as port 26, because my ISP blocks port 25?

Brief Answer: It just doesn't make sense, since it will not work.

Answer: Even if we will enable that option, if you choose a different port, other than 25, nobody will be able to receive your emails, because all SMTP hosts and servers work on port 25 which is a standard for SMTP as defined by Internet Engineering Task Force(IETF). You can specify port in your email program, but that is only when your own SMTP Server is configured to receive connections on port other than 25. But from your SMTP to the destination SMTP, I can pretty much assure you it goes on the port 25, other programs take other ports. Here is just a partial services file that shows you how different programs use different ports as standard.
