Default Oil Based Paints.

Some states are banning VOC's.

Is oil (alkyd) based paints still legal to purchase in Arizona?

I believe that you can purchase a gallon of "Ironclad" from Benjamin Moore, it's for interior use only, dries fast, and smells horrible, but if ya gotta have it! Use Acrylic (water based) outside...otherwise you will have peeling issues.

I recently painted an exterior door in an oil-based paint Home Depot recommended for the purpose.

First mistake was listing to the sales rep at Home Depot ,most have no clue when it comes to painting. I've overheard them give bad advise many times.

Oil paints finish is way to hard especially for Az. climate, ( no elasticity to it ) it will fade a lot quicker ( latex has much better color retention ) and will mildew faster ( not really a big problem in Az. ). If the front door is shaded you probably won't have any problems but I would highly advise against using it.

Unit731....Some states have banned oil but most have regulated the VOC's to where it's almost unusable now,qts. aren't regulated only gallons.

It's facing north and is under a covered patio so I don't think sun damage will matter for a while. The paint looks so-so, though, because it's high gloss and the door is an older, cheap steel one, so the paint highlights all the dings in the door. I will probably cover it with some sort of security view door soon anyway, though. And anything's better than the chalky, blue mess it was before the paint.
