Form Mail question

Is it possible to use an outside mail server using FormMail?
This is the only code I found that calls the previously defined $mailprog string:
   open(MAIL,"|$mailprog -t");
I understand that the code here opens the interpreted command after the pipe, but what do i need to change in order to use a mail prog off another server?

Many sincere thanks in advance,
Jon
