For a smarthost you would normally use your ISP's relay mail server which will be set up to allow relaying from IP addresses that they issue to you.  This will be the mail server used for POP/SMTP accounts if you were using Outlook.

no you don't need to use a smart host. however most ISP will block outbound SMTP traffic to reduce  spam issues from their clients and that might be the reason why you are unable to send emails.

your best bet is to contact your ISP and let them give you their SMTP server, and use the latter as smarthost

If you try to use your ISP relay server in outlook its going to ask you for an user name and passwork for your account when configuring it and since you have your own exchange box in house the mail accounts are sitting on that box and now the ISP relay box
