Will switching to port 587 work for other ISPs or just .mac?

It *might* work with other ISPs. Not all providers are enlightened enough to provide the alternative mail port. If you have a good one, it will. Try it. A fast way is to open the terminal and "telnet your.mail.server 587". If you get a connect message, you know your provider supports it.
