Which ports should I use when setting up email?

The ports you use at this time are ports that belong to mail over a secure connection.

incoming server POP3  :  995
incoming server IMAP via SSL/TLS  :  993
incoming server IMAP via STARTTLS *  :  143
outgoing server SSL  :  465
outgoing server STARTTLS  :  587 - preferred

* this is for older mail clients < windows 8 and, for example, older android versions like KitKat and old iOs systems.

The ports associated with a unprotected connection are:

incoming server POP3  :  110
outgoing server SSL  :  25 of 26

It is better to don't use the above ports, rather use the ports that run through a secure connection.
