Port forwarding proxy from 8080 to 25

Port forwarding proxy from 8080 to 25

Hi network heads.

The company  I work for, has, for some bizarre security reason, blocked the outgoing email port 25 so we can't send email (but we can receive it?!).  What I'm wanting to do is send my email out on port 8080 to a proxy server that then port-forwards to port 25 on my mail server.  My nefarious plan  may be fundamentally flawed but you've got to give it a go don't ya...

Is there such a proxy-server out there anyone knows about?  If not, is there another way round this?

I could just use webmail - but that'd be too easy :)

Cheers in advance.
