Correct the default value of TLS / SSL port from 465 to 25

Port 465 for TLS / SSL has been deprecated, but the default value on the server doc is 465.  This default value should be changed to 25.  This is found on the server doc, Ports - Internet Ports - Mail, SMTP Outbound, SSL Port Number.

Also, the default value for TCP/IP port status should be Negotiated SSL rather than Enabled and the default value for SSL Port should be set to Disabled so TLS will be used by default.

Here is a related idea too:

    Yes, but:

    RFC also acknowledges that there is a defacto difference between RFC definition and current practice.

    Current practice is SMTP over TCP 25 with StartTLS, where encryption is agreed upon.

    Isn't it?

    Port 465 is the correct default port for SMTP/TLS for clients submitting mails to the server - for details see
