Problem with Iphones

I set up a weird/strange port to the internal SMTP server and let the 
iPhones auth against the internal email server instead of trying to 
maintain users on the MailScanner servers.

On the iPhone you can set up a port, IIRC you append a colon and the 
port number (but you have to enter it fresh, not edit if you want to 
change the port to avoid issues).
