For SMTP server, you have to write the name of the server that you use to get send your e-mail. For instance, if your e-mail is me@someDomain.com, then your SMTP server may be something like "mail.someDomain.com" or something like that. If you have your e-mail setup in Outlook, you can go to Tools -> E-mail Accounts -> View Existing account -> Select your e-mail account -> Click "Change". The SMTP server should be listed under Outgoing Server.

You may need to call your mail service provider to get the name of the server if you don't know it or can't find it in Outlook. Also to get the port number, if it's necessary.
