Windows Server 2008 Domain with IIS and smtp enabled and no Exchange server or other email Server installed

I am using an smtp testing app. With anonymous access enabled, it finds the smtp server I entered and the test email gets sent. The test email is getting sent to an address outside of the Domain. With basic authentication or windows authentication set in the smtp server properties, it fails, even though I enter the domain administrator and password into the smtp test app. I have entered in the smtp server's ip address in the list of addresses that can relay. Ultimately, i want to send Sharepoint email alerts out from the smtp server to external email addresses Any ideas? Thanks.
