Remarks

If your local SMTP server (included with Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003) is behind a firewall that blocks any direct SMTP traffic (through port 25), you will need to find out if there is a smart host available on your network that is allowed to relay SMTP messages to the Internet.

A smart host is an SMTP server with the permissions to relay outgoing email messages directly to the Internet from internal SMTP servers. A smart host should be able to simultaneously connect to both the internal network and the Internet in order to work as the email gateway.
