that's kind of hard, some mailboxes are very expensive and some are downright 
impossible in some cases (think imap)

I'm not sure I understood the question, but I think the answer is no :)

host:port is the standard way of saying, host and port. :smtp in this case
is just an 'alias' for the assigned smtp port. however, this must be freeform 
as some users *need* to submit messages on nonstandard ports.

No. Some HTML email references messages on an internet server. Balsa
will not fetch random stuff from the net - if you really want to do
that use the open in browser option. That will give you a full browser
with your internet security settings instead of an half baked browser type
