1st If you want to clear all mail statistics , you can easily conduct this operation from the cmd line;
NOTE : I don't know of any way to download the statistics off the unit directory after doing this
2nd Have you ever had stale greylisting entries in the display , and new ones are not populating? Will you can clear the greylist database from the cli.
The FortiMail appliance allows you to download the logs from the gui, you can use these logs via scripts to manipulate collection of details such as; client_ip; dispositions;etc...
Remember you can write layer3 ACLs to block by address for receive or outgoing;
This way, you don't have to wait for your firewall team to block anything for you :)
For Secured SMTP you need to check the following box.
Lastly, when updating software, always backup the cfg. I've seen problems where rules where lost during a OS update
