What is the "port number?"

I’m trying to set up posting to my blog by e-mail, and the WordPress page asks for the “port number.” The default number is 110. I cannot find reference to port number in the DreamHost wiki.

That’s the POP3 port number to configure how WordPress will pick up POP3 mail from the email address you set up. I’m pretty sure it’s 110.
