Outgoing email is blocked by Sophos UTM 9 firewall...

I am just learning the Sophos UTM 9 firewall interface APP:

I have my e-mail setup in MS outlook to send/retrieve e-mail from my gmail account. This works fine if I bypass the firewall.

When I am routing through the firewall, mail will come in but mail will not go out (just stays in the outbox)

Does anyone know how to configure the Sophos UTM 9 firewall software so out going mail is not blocked?

From the account properties in outlook, check the outgoing SMTP port used. then create a rule in sophos to allow that port to external netowrk. usually it is 25.
Step 9.

Configure internal clients to use SMTP email. You may have to go back in and change the port to what GMail uses.
