HowTo access-list blocking a specific port

I have to block all outbound SMTP trafic on one of my interfaces (firewall connection) of a cisco 3650 switch
it should block anything and allow only my mail server trafic.
I set this access list:
Extended IP access list 102
    10 permit tcp host mail_server_IP any eq smtp
    20 deny tcp any any eq smtp

when I try to add that access-list to the required interface I don't have "out" option:
conf t
int g0/1 (the interface I want to block)
ip access-group 102 in (in is the only option & I need out)

what was I doing wrong?
why didn't I get the "out" option?

applying this access-list with "in" option blocked all outbound trafic on this port
