That's probably not enough.  With your solution, I think Gnus still
tries port 25, but doesn't find an according line in .authinfo.  So you
probably must configure this in Gnus as well, e.g. in your posting
styles.  I'm no Gnus expert, so this is more or less my experience based

But as an example I can give you my (working) configuration of my
googlemail account using port 587 for smtp.  This is the entry I have in

         ("X-Message-SMTP-Method" "smtp 587 
         (address "address@hidden"))

and this is my according line in my .authinfo:

machine login heerdegen.michael port 587 password foo
