You are stating the obvious.

I'll try a more technical answer. Remember, you were of the opinion that
using nmap could be a criminal offence in some countries (which you
declined to name).

I will use my preferred email client (telnet) for this test.

  brian@desktop:~$ telnet mail.o2.co.uk 25
  Connected to mail.o2.co.uk.
  Escape character is '^]'.
  220 mail.o2.co.uk ESMTP Service ready

  brian@desktop:~$ telnet mail.o2.co.uk 587
  telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

I also used another 40.000 ports.

Happpier with this?

Communication is one of the most basic human needs. Have I transgressed
its boundaries?
