Standalone SMTP Server

We have an Exchange 2010 running on Windows 2008 R2 without any problems at all. There are times that because of scheduled hardware maintenance or emergency procedures we have to "route" all our services to another site.
During that time the only thing that is not working is sending alarms/alerts emails to our IT Department whenever one of the remote programs gives an error and that is because there is no Exchange server on the remote site.

Instead of installing and configuring a full exchange server, is there any 3rd party small SMTP server program that could be able to receive user/pass/auth/sender/recipient/subject/body and then send a basic email (remember that are only alerts, so there is no need to be a fancy email) to our guys from IT?

Some friends told me about postie.exe.
Any better solution or program that you can think of?

Thanks for your help,
