Or, anyone can follow the below steps also for changing the Port of SMTP or POP:
Highlight pop.gmail.com under Tools then Account, and click Properties.
• Click the Advanced tab.
• Fill in the following information:*
•   Check the box next to This server requires a secure connection (SSL) under Outgoing Mail (SMTP).
•   Enter port 587 in the Outgoing mail (SMTP): field.
•   Under Outgoing Mail (SMTP), check the box next to This server requires a secure connection (SSL).
