I don't know offhand, but it's an interesting question. Personally I don't worry about it. 8GB is a tiny fraction of my 276GB of local mirrors...

What is the problem you are having? This question doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

comment How can I set Postfix outgoing port to 465, but keep incoming port to default?
Call the ISP and tell them to unblock it. Blocking incoming port 25 is absurd for a business class connection.
