I just setup a Cisco PIX 506e firewall. By default it allows smtp 25 to
pass-through without any issues. The only minor problem that I had was name
resolution for my external pop3 server. I solved it by changing the server
name to it's IP address, that way I didn't have to go and open any conduits.
