How to make SharePoint 2013 Foundation work with Hosted Exchange

We have SharePoint 2013 Foundation running on an IIS 8 VM.  The server is Windows Server 2012 Data Center.  My company uses a hosted Exchange service (Exchange 2010).  I have the SMTP FQDN and TCP port used for relay that the Exchange hosting company gave me.

Essentially the hosting company requires relay.hostingco.com (this is made up of course) on TCP port 2525 and no authentication.  I have this set up in IIS in the SMTP properties for the SharePoint - 80 site.

I then have SharePoint set up to send email to my IIS host (call it intranet.mycompany.com).  It's set this way because SharePoint can't be configured to use unique TCP ports or authentication as you know.

None of this works.  I've called the hosting company and they say I have everything right although I don't think they're SharePoint experts.

Can anyone think of something I missing?

Much thanks in advance.

So you configured a Smart Host on a local SMTP server that forwards all email traffic to relay.hostingco.com, correct?  Did you configure a specific domain that the smart host accepts emails on?  And did you configure this domain in the outgoing email settings in Central Admin?

ACH1LLES - Maybe I was using the wrong terms.  SharePoint points to its host server (IIS server) to send email.  IIS points to the hosted Exchange service's "smart host."  I have no access into that server - they just gave me an FQDN and a port number.  See the screen shot I attached from IIS.

ACH1LLES - this was the solution.  It all works like a champ now.  Thanks for your help!
