Don't email clients default to assume that SMTP will be done on port 25?

So if I want to run my own MTA, it's bad if I don't want to spend extra 
money, but fine if I do?  The content of my mails is going to be the 
same in either case.  I find this an interesting take on American 
society and the internet, where "buying one's way to legitimacy" is 
commonly-accepted, whether through ssl certs or buying one's way into a 
"good" school district by paying more for a house.  I guess this is 
probably OT.
