How to send Trend Micro reports without a local mail server

I have a client with 1 server and 25 workstations. The client is using mail services from his ISP POP3 mail server. Trend Micro Worry Free Business Standard is installed on the server.  The problem with Trend Micro is that it does not support SMTP authentication, so I can't configure the ISP's mail server as the SMTP server for sending reports.  The client is not going to spend money on a mail server just so Trend can send reports, so I'm wondering if anyone has run into this situation and come up with a clever workaround.  Thanks.

hi,
u can install hmailserver. its a free mail server program. You can configure it even on a XP Desktop.
http://www.hmailserver.com/

Trend micro can then be pointed to the IP address of this hmail server. You can configure hmail using the link below to route all mails trough an ISP.

Hmail worked using simple tests with Outlook Express as the client. I'm going to configure Trend to point to the Hmail server to send reports. Thanks for the assist.
