XF 1.4 What port does SMTP email default to?

#1
If using an SMTP provider such as mandrill, what port does Xenforo use to make the connection? Mandrill asks users to use port 587, although presumably this is their incoming port?

I ask because my host has blocked everything and attempts to send email via SMTP are timing out. They have stated I have to specifically request certain ports to be opened, and I'm not sure which I need to request?

You need to enter the port in XF for SMTP, so it's whatever port your service provider requests.
