On a Sonicwall Pro3060 with Enhanced OS, I need to block all smtp traffic, port 25 from going to WAN.  The only exception for that I need is for our e-mail server to allow for SMTP port 25.  I can't have workstations having ability to have SMTP enabled.

Just add an outbound rule denying from LAN to WAN Service SMTP: LAN-->WAN DENY 25
Then add a rule that allows LAN to WAN Source [Internal Mail Server IP] DESTINATION [ANY] Service 25: LAN-->WAN Source x.x.x.x Destination ANY 25

Is that clear enough?

Thanks, I was putting in the Destination as "WAN Subnets".  When I changed it to ANY I tested and works.

I always get confused with all the Address Groups that SonicWall has.

Yeah. WAN Subnets is just your WAN address's or your public IP's assigned to the WAN subnet.
