Also you are trying to send SSL encrypted mail on port 25 This is NOT the default position for hMailsevrer and you would need a certificate installed to achieve that. If you have a valid certificate, AND it is installed in hMailsevrer, THEN you will need to set some custom detail in the TCP/IP ports...
