Netgear-Email Logs-No optoins for SMTP port or SMTP Auth!!

I have a netgear FVS 114 VPN router.
We think we had someone hack into our network from China and download some files (we were using a network monitoring software that alerted us to this). I am trying to pull the logs from the router to try to trace the transfer internally. The only way to get to the logs is a button on the routers web interface to email them out. There is a separate page to setup the email settings - these are the only fields on that page:

Send to this E-mail Address:        
Outgoing Mail Server:

No SMTP port, no SMTP Authentication.
How do i get this thing to send out emails when there are no email servers anymore that don't use an alternate port or SMTP Auth?
There is a firmware update available for this router - but I'm hesitant to update it. Last time i did a firmware update it wiped out everything on the router (including logs).

Any ideas?

it should be just using standard smtp port (25).  If you're sending to an internal email address, generally it should deliver it, it just may not send to an email outside of your company.  This is assuming you have an email server inside your company.

Technically you could set up a mailbox, then foward this mailbox to an outside source.  But you still need an email server.

If the router doesn't support SMTP authentication, you have to use a mail server that doesn't use SMTP authentication. I don't see any way around that.

You can perhaps setup your own in-house smtp server to handle this one transaction and configure it however you like. I believe most flavors of windows server OS have a mail server built in that you can turn on. Otherwise I'm sure there is some free or trial SMTP server software out there you can install on a box, give the box a static IP, and point your router at it.
