Why Use SMTPSocket or HTTPSocket?

I assume that if the SMTPSecureSocket or HTTPSecureSocket Secure boolean property is set to False, that they would act exactly as SMTPSocket or HTTPSocket… Is that true?

If so is there ever a reason ti use SMTPSocket or HTTPSocket if one has configurable connections settings in the app? Is there any advantage in using SMTPSocket or HTTPSocket for insecure connections in that situation?

Nope is my experience and same conclusion, tried both, wasn’t able to ‘measure’ a difference. Compatibility reasons is all i can tell
