Default Help configure Postfix to use alt port 465 or 587

I have a server running a web site for a small company that has a few employees roaming about the country with laptops. They sometimes can not send mail because some ISPs block port 25, in peticular 1 local ISP

I search and found a couple of threads that pointed me in the right direction.

My problem is I tried the suggestions but the clients wont connect to smtp on either port 465 or 587.

I am not sure if I am doing it right here is code from

# Postfix master process configuration file.  For details on the format
# of the file, see the Postfix master(5) manual page.
# ==========================================================================
# service type  private unpriv  chroot  wakeup  maxproc command + args

smtp      inet  n       -       n       -       -       smtpd
#submission inet n      -       n       -       -       smtpd

#  -o smtpd_etrn_restrictions=reject
#  -o smtpd_enforce_tls=yes -o smtpd_sasl_auth_enable=yes
#628      inet  n       -       n       -       -       qmqpd
Witch lines in paticular need to be uncommented for port 587 or 465 or both ?

I tried many combinations and all uncommented and set it back to get port 25 working.
