Description

People using e-mail clients to connect to e-mail servers should be using port 587 (not 25). Sometimes this will be through a firewall, so it makes sense to add this to the GUI Firewall Rules, Edit, Destination Port Range drop-down.

Gmail, for instance, uses port 587 for message (e-mail) submission if you are not using the web.
