USG 50 Email using SMTP Port 25

Click for full size
Is there any way to specify what port the USG 50 uses to send out daily statistics emails via SMTP?
My ISP recently blocked port 25 and my USG 50 emails are no longer received.
Any insight appreciated.
I don't see any way to override the default SMTP port.

That was one of the functional requirements for the USG series that superataru identified in the recent topic:

This appears to be possible through the CLI with BDS.4 at least:

1. From CLI run "configure terminal"

2. Run "show daily-report status" to validate current config:

i.e. "smtp port: 25"

3. Modify the setting by running:

"daily-report
smtp-port new_port_number
exit
exit"

4. Verify the new setting by running:

"show daily-report status"

i.e. "smtp port: new_port_number"

5. Save configuration changes and exit CLI by running

"write
exit"

Curious,
In addition to the USG50 I have two NAS devices that email statuses daily and they too are now blocked.
They use port 25 and are not re-configurable.
I was wondering if there was any such thing as "reverse NAT" or "outgoing NAT/PAT"?
Can the USG50 be configured with a rule of some sort to change all outgoing port 25 traffic to port 587 and the reverse on input?
This would solve everything.
My NAS (BuffaloTech) devices are a few years old and have no way to easily change the port for outgoing mail.
Running my own SMTP server is really not viable. I am looking for a "greener" solution.
Thanks in advance,
J

Thanks for the CLI code.
My CLI reference must be old I think I will track down a newer one.
I did check before posting but found nothing.

The new version zip release should contain the latest CLI document.

Although the OP was referring to e-mailing the daily report, I also found that the tip from polarisdb also applies to defining the smtp port for e-mailing the log.

The CLI worked perfectly.
