Port 993 is the IMAP port. IMAP only allows you to connect to and read the mailboxes. It doesn't allow you to send messages. To be able to send messages, you have to use the SMTP protocol. You won't be able to use SMTP on port 993 if IMAP is enabled on the server. To do authenticated SMTP, you would use port 587, which is the default receive connector in Exchange for accepting authenticated, secured SMTP sessions.

Basically it works like this:
1. Configure IMAP on port 993 to read messages on the mail server
2. Configure SMTP on port 587 to send messages

Change the port in the second screenshot to something other than 25. You can use 587, but there's already a default connector that uses port 587. What I'm saying is that you don't need to create a new connector. You just need to configure Oracle to use port 587 when connecting to the exchange server, since there's already a connector set up for authenticated SMTP by default.
