Email server profile with custom port

We have a client who wants to schedule PDF reports to an email server using a custom port.

 

The firewall will let him enter the port in the email server profile, but when trying to send a test email of the report, it fails immediately and tcpdump shows that there are no packets sent.

 

When the custom port is removed, the firewall tries to send a test email, but gets no response because the mail server is not listening on the standard port.

 

Is it possible to successfully set up an email server profile with a nonstandard port?

 

Thank you!

@jfritchey,

This should be working perfectly fine, the one thing that you have to check when doing something like this, is if the traffic is actually being allowed through your security rulebase (if it's passing through your firewall).
