Postfix sending on port 25 or 587, major headache...
Im a relitive newbie when it comes to linux. all i know is what i've messed with at school/personal use. Now im trying to setup a LAMP server with WordPress blogging php script. The script sends an e-mail with your password once you sign up.
My problem is that i have ATT yahoo internet and they block port 25. I can give anyone who wants a look at it the link, they wont let me post it here because im new.
I have attatched my master.cf and main.cf to see if anyone has ideas on how to make this work. My blog is essentialy crippled since i cannot have new uses sign up.
Does anyone have ideas on this?

Unfortunately, you can't do anything to bypass that other than use a relayhost or host your server somewhere else.
A relay host is another mail server that will allow you to forward all your outgoing mail to them and they will relay it for you.
Your Internet provider will have a mail server that you should be able to use. Once you find out what it is, in your main.cf file, you will need to add:
relayhost = smtp.myrelayprovider.com
