Port Forwarding(port 25) on Ignite modem

I have an ignite modem and would like to forward port 25. I want to have my own email server for my own domain. Is this possible or is port 25 blocked for use?

I believe that port 25 is blocked on Rogers residential Internet services.  Even if it was not, operating a server is prohibited in the Terms of Service:
