Hi.

There is a difference between the manual setup displayed and the email setup app configuration for the smtp port.

Code:
Secure SSL/TLS Settings
(Recommended)
Username: 	[email protected]
Password: 	Use your cPanel password.
Incoming Server: 	server1.domain.net

    IMAP Port: 993
    POP3 Port: 995

Outgoing Server: 	server1.domain.net

[B]    SMTP Port: 465[/B]  [B][COLOR="#FF0000"]config app has 25[/COLOR][/B]

Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.
Also I don't see any IMAP port info in the app.

Has anyone seen this?

Thanks

Hello :)

I opened an inquiry (case 94325) with out development team to see if there is a specific reason we use port 25 in the auto configuration scripts. I will ensure this thread is updated with more information as it becomes available.

Thank you.

This is scheduled to be addressed in cPanel version 11.42.2 so that the secure port is used for the MacOS auto configuration scripts. You can look for case 94325 in the change logs to see when the resolution has been pushed out:
