SMTP doesn't work like that. If you are sending (and receiving) mail to and from other mail servers then they connect over port 25 and only that port for an SMTP connection. Port 465 is a 'submission' port for 'fat' mail clients to connect to a mail server and send mail which then goes out via port 25. You need to determine why you can't connect via port 25, as I mentioned you may have a firewall problem of an ISP that doesn't let you send outbound mail via port 25, as I don't know your configuration I'm not able to advise you what to do next.

I'm guessing that's your problem, what they're talking about in that article is you using a mail relay service that will allow you to send mail via another server (on port 587 or 465) so that you're not blocked - It's most likely that some of these services charge a fee. You could always use a hosting provider that doesn't block port 25.
Another internet search finds these services, one of which is google (although I prefer to steer clear of their services): https://www.startpage.com/do/dsearch?qu ... ge=english
