I'm not sure what specifically you are asking for.  Do you mean you 
want to attach a port number to an email address, so that when the 
message gets through whichever SMTP servers are needed beforehand,
is ready to be sent to the final one (the one for the end user), you

want to instruct the prior SMTP server to use a different port?  That


You send message to your local SMTP server, it relays to server X,
it sends to final recipient's server, using non-standard port?

Or do you simply want to instruct your client to use a different port

when submitting messages?
