It will use SMTP on port 25.
Some anti virus packages block this and need to have it opened.

OK. So, if that port is basically open, then DB mail can work ok, right? there should not be any other needs?

I wouldn't say "No other needs".
Access to the SMTP Server, no firewall blocking, account permissions, DB mail configuration (Accounts and Profiles), etc...
