I am trying to build a web server in my home. I have static IP address and my web server works really nice but my mail server is not. I also want to send mails from my computer but my ISP is blocking port #25 . I tried to use port #587  and set the important settings but my mail server POSTFIX is trying to connect other mail servers (like google's or msn's) over port #25. How can i achieve this. I have made hours of searches on internet but i could not solve my problem. I am a real newbie so i need help very much.

Thank you,
Caner

Yum install postfix
Within main.cf look at relay and transport forward all outgoing to your ISPs server using port 465 or 587.

For inbound, you would need to setup postfix to listen on ports 465 SSL and 587 off port 25
On the external firewall forward ports.....

If your ISP is blocking incoming port 25 to you, your options are limited to finding a provider that will accept messages destined to your domain that can be configured to direct the traffic to a preferred port, or use a different set of mechanisms where your server will connect to the remote and retrieve ............

A number of ISPs like Comcast block all use of port 25, both incoming and outgoing.  You may have to get a business account where they allow it.

Hello arnold

My settings were correct but my port is blocked by ISP so there is no way out :(

Hello Dave,

I have found out that my ISP is blocking port 25 so i opened a VPS and build my own mail server on it.

Thank you for your answers.
