Error configuring email within Drupal with SMTP server to send email during new account creation

Hi,

The following error is coming when trying to setup new user account in Drupal.Attached is the screen shot.Environment is Windows Vista with BitNami Drupal Stack.
BitNami Drupal Stack ships with the following:
  - Drupal 6.2
  - Apache 2.2.8
  - MySQL 5.0.51b
  - PHP 5.2.6
  - phpMyAdmin 2.11.2.2

warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 554 5.7.1 <rama@yahoo.com>: Relay access denied in C:\Drupal6\apps\drupal\htdocs\includes\mail.inc on line 193.
Unable to send e-mail. Please contact the site admin, if the problem persists.

In php.ini the SMTP server for outgoing is configured as
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = mail.dnsexit.com
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from = user@domain.com    //This is changed here to mask the actual email

Email setup is tested with outlook to send and receive the emails. mail.inc is shown in the attached screen shot which is having line number 193 corresponds to ')'. Could not find any help in the web to solve the issue. Could you let me know what could cause the error.

Thanks

Your SMTP server is rejecting unauthorized relays, and rightly so. Wouldn't want your box turned into a open spam relay, eh? Most likely you'll need to use a user/password in order to send mail through dnsexit.com.

After doing some searching, it appears there's a SMTP module for Drupal which supports SMTP authentication and should clear it up for you.

The solution works fine with Drupal 5.x. I am looking for the same module for Drupal 6.x.
