IIS SMTP Relay issue

I have a windows 2003 server running IIS.  I have turned SMTP on.  
I can configure Outlook express to send emails from the server as long as I set the
"Outgoing mail (SMTP):" to 127.0.0.1
The server has a domain name associated with it.
I would like to be able to set the "Outgoing mail (SMTP):" to the domain name instead of the localhost ip.
Also, I need to be able to send without authenticating, therefore I believe I need to add th domain name to the relay exception list.
Someone suggested that I may need to contact the domain admin (Network Solutions) and have them update a DNS entry?

I got the MX updated.  But I am discovering something strange...
I can do the following ->  Telnet 127.0.0.1 25 and I get a response from the SMTP server.
But if I use the server's actual ip address and do -> Telnet 10.10.17.78 25 I do not get a response.
