Lightbulb Running SMTP on multiple ports (postfix)

Hello all;

As with most large ISP's, my ISP filters port 25 (SMTP). As a web hosting provider, I felt that my customers should be able to use my email server to send email, as well as receive it. It's kind of a value added feature

So, here's how I did it:

Open /etc/postfix/master.cf and add the following line:
587       inet  n       -       n       -       -       smtpd
This is for postfix only. Restart postfix and your done. This doesn't really have anything to do with ISPConfig, however maybe it should be an option...?

EDIT: I forgot to tell you, SMTP will listen on ports 25 and 587
