How to change Web Mail MTA port: 25 to another port?

Hi there,
The webmail client doesn't connect directly to port 25 to deliver a message. It sends a http request to the server that you are connected to, on the port that you're connected to. For example, if it were https, it would be port 443 - most likely.
The server accepts the http connection, and the message is sent to the server via something called SOAP (still over the http(s) connection). The server then reads the soap request and takes action. The MTA network setting only involves how the server itself sends messages.

Plain and simple explanation, this helps to understand why logs show server ips and 7071 port.
BTW, appreciate your posts.
