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:
Code:
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

This is a great solution but when i try to send an email using 587 port, no auth is required and the server become an open relay.
Any idea?

I tried to use this tip from a remote pc with an outside ip but it doesn't work.
When I send an email, i can't authenticate me using port 587.

Looks fine.

What's the exact error message? What's in the mail log? Did you enable "Server requires authentication." in your email client?

Is saslauthd running? What's the output of
Code:
ps aux|grep saslauthd
?
What's in /etc/postfix/master.cf?

The problem occurs only when i try to use like smtp port 587.
Using 25 it's all ok.

Change this line:

Code:
587       inet  n       -       n       -       -       smtpd
to

Code:
587       inet  n       -       -       -       -       smtpd
in /etc/postfix/master.cf and restart Postfix.
