Entering Access-list into PIX

I already have an access list created called 'ACL' and it is already applied to the outside interface. I am taking over management of this PIX and I am only familiar with Cisco routers and not firewalls. I did a conf t and entered
"access-list acl permit tcp any host [insert IP here] 25". This is what I got
"ERROR: extra command argument(s)
Usage:  [no] access-list compiled
[no] access-list <id> compiled
[no] access-list <id> deny|permit <protocol>|object-group <protocol_obj_grp_id>
                <sip> <smask> | object-group <network_obj_grp_id>
                [<operator> <port> [<port>] | object-group <service_obj_grp_id>]
                <dip> <dmask> | object-group <network_obj_grp_id>
                [<operator> <port> [<port>] | object-group <service_obj_grp_id>]
[no] access-list <id> deny|permit icmp
                <sip> <smask> | object-group <network_obj_grp_id>
                <dip> <dmask> | object-group <network_obj_grp_id>
                [<icmp_type> | object-group <icmp_type_obj_grp_id>]"

I'm so new to PIX that I have no idea what this is telling me. Please help me enter this in the right spot. Thanks.

Thanks that worked! Now how do I save. I tried "write" and "copy run start". Thanks again.

"write mem" saves the config.   Equal to a "copy run start"
