In the past, even with the 0.9.4 branch, it was possible to enter the hostname for the smtp server in host:port notation. As Mailnews does not provide a separate GUI for specifying the port name of the server, this was the only way of using a nonstandard port. With the current trunk of Mozilla this does no longer work. To reproduce this, you need a smtp server running on a port different from 25. Set smtp hostname to hostname:port. Send a mail. Mozilla complains with the error message "cannot connect to server". This is caused by NS_MsgBuildSmtpUrl, which always appends ":25" to the smtp hostname.
