There is nothing special about a smarthost - usually you will use your ISP's outbound SMTP server. However if you phone the ISP and ask them if they have a smarthost that you can use then most of them will either not know what you are on about or say no.

Most ISP's allow their own clients to relay mesages via their smtp server as you are on their network, and they can hunt you down if you abuse it. It's a much faster way of sending legitimate bulk email, as it puts the stress on them, with their fat pipes and all.

AuthSMTP - http://www.authsmtp.com - is the one we use with Exchange 2003 because our ISP does not provide SMTP. Works well - cheap and and they virus scan the outgoing email.
