No -- The problem is that *every single time* they configure their mail
client they have to change the port from 25 to 587. This results in a
support cost every time a user needs their client configured.
My instructions have used 587 since the day I added support on my mail
server, but most people still use 25 because they simply don't bother to
go into the Advanced options to configure anything even if the
instructions tell them to do so.
Failure is not an option. It's bundled with your software.
