Ultimate usability test: change your SMTP port

Ever wonder how much the vendor of your mail client cares about usability? Then try and change the SMTP port.

Outlook is horrible. Hidden behind a cascade of dialogs and inside a wizard.

Apple Mail is even worse. Note the hidden button inside a drop down (yuck!).

Thunderbird just requires 3 clicks.

All of them have in common that the setting is separated from your incoming (IMAP, POP3) account settings. While technically correct, this is not where I would look first.
