I had an issue on my magento website.
The mails are working, it sent order confrmation emails. But all status notification emails are bounced.
is someone has already had or saw this behavior ?
thank you very much for your help.

Glad to hear you solved the issue for your store! I've run across this a few times as well. Thought I would share a bit of background on why changing the port from 25 -> 587 got your mail flowing again...
It would appear the primary reason is that traffic on port 25 is not encrypted and sent entirely in plain text - by changing the port to 587 you are going to be using TLS & encrrypting the message communications between your Magento app and the Mail Transfer Agent that will be relaying your outbound SMTP mail. That's better for everyone.
I'm including a few reference links below on the differences between the ports and how they're traditionally used:
