Relay email using a different smart host

I am using Exchange 2010. On our domain, we have an application server that relays through our Exchange server to send out alerts. Our exchange server uses a smart host to relay email. The problem is, our 3rd party Spam Filter does not want us using the same smart host for alert type emails because they generate too much traffic.

How do I configure the relay to send the email from our application server using a different smart host? Currently,  I have it setup with a receive connector specifying the IP address of the remote server. I was able temporarily fix the problem by configuring a send connector to send to 1 specific domain using the different smart host. I do not want to leave it that way because this means that every email we sent from our organization flows through the secondary smart host. I need it narrowed down to the receive connector. I need the Exchange Server to relay EVERY email that it gets from the Application server through the secondary smart host.

Does the application server have to relay mail through Exchange? Could you configure it to send directly to the secondary smart host?
