There's a standardized port defined for this purpose, TCP port 587, the
"mail submission" port, from RFC 2476 (conceptually separating MTA from
MSA).  I haven't yet seen an ISP that blocks 25 that also blocks port 587.
Traditionally, this port is TLS+SASL enabled so it works from anywhere to

Higher ports work fine too.
