Default isp blocks port 25

ISPconfig is very cool and I have most of it working.

So, my isp blocks port 25 and I have got around this in the past by using the smtp redirect service with rollernet.us and port 2525 with another mail server.

I've added to /etc/postfix/master.cf

smtp inet n - n - - smtpd
2525 inet n - n - - smtpd

I can telnet to both 25 and 2525 and get the normal responses and postfix is running.

netstat -tap provides this:

There is an A record pointing to mail under the domain to the correct global IP.

The MX record points to mail.rollernet.us

However, when I try to point an email client to mail.domain.com or the IP address I get a mail relay access denied when trying to send.. I'm not sure if the issue is with the local ispconfig server or with rollernet. Or maybe both. When I send an email from an external account it disappears. No bounce and no received email.


I've trawled through the forums looking for the answer to this but haven't found it. Probably I've missed something obvious.
