BUG: Default ports for TLS are incorrect
Problem reported by Neal Culiner - August 8 at 12:30 PM
Resolved
Create a new port such as POP and notice the default non secure port, now change it to SSL, now change it to TLS. TLS should use the same as SSL and not the non-secure port. For example non secure is port 110, SSL and TLS should both default to 995. If you change it from SSL to TLS you'll see it go back to 110 which I don't believe is correct.

Edit: Actually I'm not sure on this one. You'd think TLS is the newer and preferred but I may be wrong in my further googling on this.

Neal, the TLS ports are the same port numbers as the unsecured ports. The unsecured and TLS default ports are as follows...

110 for POP
143 for IMAP
25 for SMTP
587 for Submission

The default SSL ports are as follows...

993 for IMAP
995 for POP
465 for SMTP

I hope this helps. Thanks.

Thanks Linda, I figured that out, just seems odd but I'm all setup now after redoing my config.

The other thing is how to configure TLS? You'd have to have a port such as 143 for IMAP non secure bound to an IP. Then create another port for 143 to binder to the same IP using TLS. If this is the correct way to configure this then SM will show invalid (red) because you have one port duplicated against the same IP, or something to that effect. So how do you correctly configure for TLS, let's take IMAP.

IMAP non secure
IMAP SSL
IMAP TLS

For a specific mail server such as mail.domain.com

When you create the secure TLS ports, they will take the place of the non-secure ports, however, both secure and non secure will be able to connect to them.
