And how will clients (the world) find you then, on port 24?
Besides, are you sure your ISP blocks *incoming* port 25? That is somewhat
unusual; *outgoing* 25, yes (for dialup users), but incoming? Regardless,
same difference: you can start sending on port 24, but since the world is
listening on port 25, that will do you little good.
