Question

I have built a firewall using SUSE firewall 2 I have also installed
qmail


Now the regular smtp port is 25

And the pop3 port is 110

I have also added ssl wrappers to smtp and pop3

As per the Qmail handbook,

The ssl wrapped ports are 465 for smtp and 995 for pop3

Do I need to remove ports 110 and 25 from the firewall .config file and
replace them with the new ones or can I just leave these in, I fear that
if I do then people will still try to scan these ports.but do they have
to be there for email to come in..

Mike
