      the primary feature of the submission service is to provide different ports for servers and clients, so that the appropriate policy can be applied to each, independently. these policies are quite obviously completely subjective, and may or may not include smtp auth [and thus with it, encryption]. the submission protocol defines a port for clients to use, period. it does not say "use port 587, unless you are talking to localhost, in which case use port 25."

      hmm, not sure where you got this idea. there have been no such statements from the op.
