In today's world this requires that you know either the target SMTP 
server or one which allows you relaying from your IP. It looks as it 
has no support for SMTP AUTH or so. Just as a personal example: Apart 
from using SMTP-after-POP3 which I do not use on any server, I could 
not relay anything from my connection without using AUTH, as my ISP 
does not anymore provide a SMTP server which accepts my from address.

Implementing an own SMTP-layer might not be that easy as one might 
think of.
