If you don't wish to have other servers connecting to deliver mail 
to this box don't allow port 25 through the firewall and your users 
will get the hint that port 587 is required.  

I assume that you use port 587 for the convenience of those users 
who are roaming through ISP's that have blocked port 25. 

Why would you care if a roaming user connects to port 25 when 
connecting from an ISP that doesn't block port 25?
