No...  Don't modify the rule, because if you ever update your rules your
changes could be 'lost'.  Just write a pass rule instead.

	pass ip any -> 25

And start snort with the -o parameter.

There is another method to ignore traffic [0] that may work better for
you.  Try both and see which one works better.
