Thanks Tray, I tried the steps and I ran a VB script I setup to test if the email would get sent and it did not work. If I put my old smtp server in the script it works fine but with this new 2008 server I get error:

Line:     20
Char:      1
Error:     The server rejected one or more recipients addresses. The server response was:550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for "my email address"

Code:   8004020F
Source:  (null)

I found the fix for 2003..I needed to set it up as a smtp relay agent, but now I need to find out how to do it on 2008 server. Anyone have any info on this? Thanks

The process should actually be the same on 2008 server, because SMTP is configured through the IIS 6 manager, even on 2008 server.  Check out this article for step-by-step: http://www.itsolutionskb.com/2008/11/installing-and-configuring-windows-server-2008-smtp-server/
