How to enable SMTP without SSL on port 25 in iRedMail / Postfix

To allow the sending of messages on the mail server without encryption via port 25, you need to open the Postfix configuration file, for example, in the nano editor (in which Ctrl+X to exit, y/n to save or cancel changes):

sudo nano /etc/postfix/main.cf

And uncomment two lines:

smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous

And leave the commented line:

#smtpd_tls_auth_only=yes

Reload Postfix to apply the changes:

sudo service postfix restart

After that it will be possible to send messages via SMTP through port 25 without SSL, and as usual through 587 with SSL.
