They want us to stop using port 25. Is this complicated? It is small Windows 2000 network, nothing fancy, the good old stuff before active direcrory (which I am sure many of you use and like) We also employ a Sonic Wall, but they have been of no help in this matter.

Turned out there were a few viruses and things that had passed the incoming Norton Corporate, but which showed up on a full scan. Those I used to do randomly when I had an opportunity -- the user would be away. Malware programs turned up more. (What can you do with the kids these days!?)

What should I do to follow the non port 25 protocol in MS product? Or would it be something I change in my webserver? Or Firewall (Sonic Wall)? I know that I have changed the numbers many times for different apps, but this is critical.

It's a 2000 network running about fifteen XP PCs , all running Symantec Corporate AV, frequently washed by Malwarebytes and more.
