In your article: https://userforum-en.mailbox.org/knowledge-base/article/setup-with-mail-app-for-ios under smtp it says to use port 465 but in the picture you see port 587. From what I read online port 465 is a legacy port. So which port should I use?

At the end, it doesn't matter. It's SMTP with SSL/TLS enabled in any case.

587 is the more modern port and recommended by our auto-config from mailbox.org und should create less problems on public hotspots.
