I just learned that BD 10 is only scanning my incoming email since it is coming in on port 110.

However, my ISP here in Canada who has millions of users don't use the hard coded BD outgoing port but 587.

SpySweeper which I have just added option to allow me to put in my own ports which gets rid of the issue.

Bad design to ever hard code in numerics make it open.

I realize you use the standards but it isn't up to BD to enforce them on users when the ISP's don't have to follow those standards.

Please fix this ASAP

Port 587 is (mostly) used for TLS encrypted communication, therefore I doubt that it makes sense to scan the encrypted data. It will always appear clean. Other than that, it won't hurt if BD adds the option to set the port manually, because there are cases when mail servers work on non-standard ports without encryption.
