I've setup one of the above on our network, I'm more familiar with SonicWall firewalls so would appreciate some pointers on how to achieve the following please --

•      Open Port 25 for email delivery
•      Open various other ports for incoming remote connections to a number of computers and servers
•      Block connectivity to some websites (e.g. Facebook) for some users but allow others to access same
•      Log internet activity from each workstation on the network

Thanks

Well , if you are familiar with Sonicwall, Fortigate should be a lot easier for you because its interface is much easier.

Open port 25, Opening various other ports (I assume it is port forwarding).
Just follow as here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnfmGnjJpF0

For Webfiltering like blocking Facebook , just enable UTM (Bock Social Engineering websites)
Basic instruction is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yBsH2_k8BU

This is for Logging Traffic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-gtjKkvFQM
Alternatively, you can activate Forticloud .

I would suggest to update latest Firmware for your model first.
One good news is if you face issue, you can simply open the ticket in Fortinet website and they attend via chat session or via Teamviewer instantly(if it is within support contract) .
