The outgoing mail server requires authentication and runs on port 465 (not 25)

That's correct. You can use port 465 SSL, but on some ISP's, especially on ones that use a cable modem, it takes forever to send out on port 465 because of port 465's security encryption requirements, so I use port 587 instead.

Forgot to mention, you are correct again on not using port 25. Port 25 is usually restricted by your ISP to their mail servers only.
