Depends on the settings at the company mailserver, 25 is the most common
choice if SSL is not used.

Well, I think you would have to setup your postfix to deliver emails
from @postgresql.org via mail.postgresql.org instead of your current
SMTP server. Of course you would have to set SMTP authentication from
your local postfix to mail.postgresql.org if it is required by the
latter.
