I'm trying to set up one of my email accounts to work with my Meteor application. Per the docs, I need to set my MAIL_URL environmental variable to the following:

smtp://USERNAME:PASSWORD@HOST:PORT/

I tried this without any luck. The mailbox name (username) and password are correct, as I can use them to login via the web interface. I was wondering if there is a port I need to list on the 'smtp.webfaction.com' host domain? Thanks.

So I later found this on Webfaction's user guide: http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/email_clients/other.html

Apparently I need to use port 465 with Meteor. I'm not sure why this is the default, but it works for my app.
