The context for this is
LibreOffice Writer->Mail Merge E-mail
The option is used to describe SMTP servers for outgoing E- mail. LibreOffice only allows for (1) unsecured connections, (2) TLS connections without authentication, and (3) TLS connections with authentication.
587 is the usual port assignment for smtp servers that use TLS. 465 is the
port assignment when SSL is used. gmail users are normally directed to use SSL
port 465. It takes some detective work to find that TLS is supported at port
587. Many mail services only provide SSL and do not offer TLS (Yahoo, for
LibreOffice should, enable the use of SSL, as opposed to TLS. The Thunderbird user interface source code can be used as a model for how to do this.
