A generic firewall rule allowing the port through from a defined source to a defined destination will work.
Or are you trying to redirect stadard SMTP (port 25) to a non-standard port.

Yeah, I am trying to use (port 587) instead, based on email rejects from many companies

Will those other companies accept email on a non-standard port?  Based on my experience they usually won't.

What do you think about using an SMTP Connector (in Exchange Server) to Relay Outbound Email Through ISP?
