Re: How do I change my default port 25 to 587

you can tell your server to listen to ports you like but you can't tell other servers to do the same.
solution in your case is using an SMTP relay host which accepts connections to ports other than 25 (587, 465, 25000 etc...).
or you make a deal with your ISP and they open outbound port 25 for you.
