RE: [linux-392] Ports

I changed the smtp port from 25, because it was blocked on the network, to
26, rebooted and it works.

So, what did I do wrong?

That's actually *not* the right place to make such a change.  That file 
is a reference file that several apps use to translate from a port 
number into a user-readable string of which app is using that port 
number.  Changing it will *not* result in a daemon starting to listen on 
another port.

If you want to change a daemon's port, you need to change the config 
file for that daemon, and then restart the daemon.
