Another question:

how do I add alternative ports? I.E.: client can connect on either 25 *or* 587?

edit:

Figured this one out on my own - not very hard, actually.

In /etc/services, commented out:

Quote:
#submission 587/tcp # Submission
#submission 587/udp # Submission
and added:

Quote:
smtp2 587/tcp mail # Simple Mail Transfer
smtp2 587/udp mail # Simple Mail Transfer
- then, in master.cf, right below:

Quote:
smtp inet n - n - - smtpd
I added:

Quote:
smtp2 inet n - n - - smtpd
Happily, this also seems to solve the problem I was having, because my ISP at home (Rogers Cable Hi-Speed Internet) appears to block traffic on port 25. I can now send mail from OE on port 587 with no issue.
