I know that but what I want to know is why is it there and can I get
rid of it with the GUI maintenance tool?

I was addressing your question "Port 50 has no entry in /etc/services, what is it for?"
Sorry, I don't know about the gui --I normally use a bunch of commands for this.
Why are they there? Well if at install time I chose to enable SSH and Mail in the
firewall section, then ports 22 and 25 will appeared enabled in the iptables files.
