Sorry guys, i did not pay attention from the beggining to the situation. 
After reading Mikel King's reply i understood that i have to ask my 
hostprovider to change the ports to someother one first.
sorry for inconvinience

     >DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=nn, Name=MTA') DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=587,
    Name=MSA, M=E')
     >Remember to change nn to whatever port you'd like to run on...

     >Now  run 'make cf' which will build your new <HOSTNAME>.cf but not
    install it as such. For that you >must run 'make install' and HUP
    your daemon.
