Theoretically yes, practically no. If you change the port you won't be able to connect to other email servers because they listen on port 25...

You could set up a second server in a data center that listens on a different port (e.g. 443) to pick up your emails and then sends them out on port 25 - but if you have a "real" server in a data center than you don't need the server in your home LAN anymore, i guess...
