I googled this, and can't appear to find the answer, and can't find where to manually set up ports for policies. I am sure I am missing something small, but how do I go about allowing ports 465 and 995 for my email server?

Just add them.  I have not been in front of the watchguard interface in a bit but its as simple as adding new "icons" (forget what they call it) and then within those new icons selecting those ports.  

Sorry I wish I still had a watchguard interface to look at real quick.

So when you open the Watchgurd interface, you see all your rules as icons, SMTP, POP, etc...  there is a way to create your own, name it whatever you want and then add those ports.  You can use 1 rule for multiple ports if you want too.

If you are using the Web UI make sure you are logging as Admin not Status. The Status username cannot change anything. Once logged in, go to Firewall>Firewall Policies in the left hand menu. In the upper right there will be a green plus sign, click that. Then open the folders for predetermined Packet Filters or create a custom policy. Click add policy and add your information.

If you are using the WatchGuard System Manager, which I highly recommend, connect to the device. Open the Policy Manager (Tools>Policy Manager). Click the blue plus sign or right click in the workspace and select Add Policy. Then open the folders for predetermined Packet Filters or create a custom policy. Click add policy and add your information.

Ports 465 and 995 will probably end up needing to be a custom policy or policies.

No problem, and thanks. It happens. I actually use a sonicwall for my primary WAN, and firebox for secondary that has my email, and webservers on multiple static IP's so I kind of got a crash course.
