What you're looking for is a new receive connector, or alternatively allowing your printer to talk to an existing receive connector. There should be one such connector in your organisation which allows anonymous connections from the Internet but a safer thing might be, if your printer supports it, to force the printer to authenticate to AD before submitting the mail.
If you do need the printer to properly relay (as opposed to simply submit, which is different) then there is a topic in the online help. It's entitled "How to Allow Anonymous Relay on a Receive Connector" so it's best to walk through that. The good thing in that help item is that it allows you to open it up for relay from the printer but locks external or even other internal systems from relaying. Nice and safe I'm sure you'll agree.
