Default postfix on mac (snow leopard) / php mail() won't work (Operation timed outů)

Hello everyone!

After hours and hours of research on this (it does appear to be quite an issue)... it still won't work.

I already tried with changes to main.cf, master.cf, php.ini, org.postfix.master...

For main.cf it was suggested to set "myhostname = host.domain.tld" to something one has control over, which I don't (so, I set it to the mailserver I use with my mailclient, but I clearly don't have any say there). Everything I tried telnetting to (e.g. telnet some-IP 25) refused to answer over port 25 (except localhost, which doesn't help much). They can be accessed via other ports (which I set accordingly in my mailclient but can't for postfix - as shows the mail.log)

I've also uncommented the line

"submission inet n - n - - smtpd"

In master.cf, which was meant to enable other ports (or another port) besides 25 - but in my mail.log file there are still entries like the following (I have edited the name of the mailserver):

Oct 11 14:56:06 my-MacBook-Pro postfix/qmgr[2123]: E8E0A46D8A7: from=<_www@host.domain.ch>, size=543, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Oct 11 14:56:36 my-MacBook-Pro postfix/smtp[2168]: connect to mail.domain.ch[80.74.142.100]:25: Operation timed out

So, it does try to use port 25 and I can't figure out how to prevent (or rather change) that.

I also tried it with my local firewall switched off (just to make sure it wasn't that) - this didn't change anything.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Following is my main.cf
command_directory = /usr/sbin
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix
mail_owner = _postfix
myhostname = host.domain.ch # edited
fallback_relay = host.domain.ch # edited

mailq_path = /usr/bin/mailq
setgid_group = _postdrop
html_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix/html
manpage_directory = /usr/share/man
sample_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix/examples
readme_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix
dovecot_destination_recipient_limit = 1
mailbox_size_limit = 0
smtpd_tls_exclude_ciphers = SSLv2, aNULL, ADH, eNULL
mydomain_fallback = localhost

mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8
smtpd_client_restrictions = permit_mynetworks permit_sasl_authenticated permit

And here is the mail.log:
