Well, yeah, that's what I thought at first also, but then how am I able to browse the internet and send and receive mail without sudoing?
Because you arent using port 25 or port 80 to connect from, your using an arbitrary port > 1024 to connect to a remote computer that is listening on port 80/25.

cjmt@bsd$ netstat -an

Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address (state)
