My current SMTP server uses a port other than 25. I need to somehow specify the port number, but there is no dialog box to put in the port. How do I do this?

To get to the box to allow this to be solved, navigate to Tools -> Settings, then in the window that opens, naviage to the Mail Accounts tab, click "Edit" and in the "Sending Mail" tab, in the host box use a ":" character to specify which port.

For Example: If my host was pop.yahoo.com, and the port was 792, I'd input the following into the host box


That should do it.
