Install SMTP on your local machine and send it through that.

Windows 2000 has an SMTP server component. Install that from Add/Remove Programs, Windows Components. Then point Backup Exec at localhost. The message will be dropped on to the server. As long as DNS is working correctly, it will find the MX record and deliver the email.
