Using Password Recovery from web server in DMZ

Hi there,
I have written a web application using ASP .Net, which we host on IIS 6.0 (running on windown server 2k3). I have a bit of problem using the password recovery/user creation controls as they try to send emails using our Exchange server, which is of course not reacheable as the the web server sits in a DMZ. Does anyone know of a way around this? I have looked into using a Virtual SMTP Server, but I couldn't find much information on how set this up.
Any help appreciated!

Hi ragi007,
Thanks for the links. I have managed to set it up so that the emails are now sent without exceptions being thrown (so I assume everything is ok on the smtp server side of things), however they are not being received at the other end. I have turned full logging on (see attached file), but I can't see anything in there that would indicate why this is happening. All the messages are saved in the mailroot\drop directory, but nothing is appearing at the destination.
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
