Setting up a email server

I have a window server 2008, I am setting up an application that will automatic dispatch a email to our personnel when there is an work order.  What do I need to and how to setup so my application can send email out to our personnel.  Do I need simply install email client or a email server? I have a list of user email some of them is company email, some aren't (e.g. gmail, yahoo email)

I am a novice, I do not have much background on this subject. I am thinking even I create a server, how will my user receive email from the internet, and how will my user send email out via internet (i.e. how do I deliver the email on behalf of the user)

I have only 5 people in my office

Do you have Server 2008 std, ent, or SBS?  If it is SBS, then Exchange 2007 will be included to optionally install.  If it is std. or ent., then you will have to setup smtp within the server.

Without knowing the application, I can only give general steps:
On server, click start, Manage server, add role.  The role you are going to add is the SMTP Server.  Once this is done installing the required services, you are going to have to type in the credentials for the account you are going to use.  An overview with images is here:  http://www.itsolutionskb.com/2008/11/installing-and-configuring-windows-server-2008-smtp-server/
