SMTP only works when using SSL, why?

    I just setup my Thunderbird e-mail client and I noticed that if I use the standard port 25 with no TLS or SSL, my connection times out and does not send the message.

    If I enable SSL (port 465)it works.

    TLS does not work as well...

    Is it possible the set the standard smtp port connection??
    Why is it not working? Any suggestions?
    Also is it possible to enable TLS in qmail (without too much hassle?)

    I also tired different email clients like Microsoft Outlook and Evolution, they only work when using SSL....

    I checked the firewall and its not that....
    When I try a simple test like a telnet on port 25... I do not get the STMP response.... if I do the same on the por 465 I do get the SMTP response.... Any ideas why?

    Thank you,
