SMTP Ports

The standard port used for SMTP connections is 25.

SiteGround also offers alternative SMTP ports - 2525587. For secure SMTP over SSL you can use port 465.

Many Internet service providers however block port 25, that's why we recommend using one of the alternative SMTP ports. More information on how to change the SMTP port on your email clients can be found in our Email Tutorial.
