Description

The current one is quite confusing and sets up bad defaults,

my suggestion is to: match the entered email address against a db of known providers (i.e gmail hotmail yahoo etc.) then based on that set up good defaults, if that fails: resolve mx record for the domain and with that server (or the name itself if no mx recor exits) (also verify DANE here, but that also needs DNSSEC which is a seperate issue to tackle) try smpt tls port and imap tls (or pop3 tls port) and if that suceeds save that for the connection, if that failst try a startssl connection and save it in a abort-if-starssl-fails sort of way
