I don't how to configure Suddenlink's smtp server either into my Exchange server or if necessary on the Outlook client.  Also, is there anything I need to configure on my router?

You just need to configure the Send Connector with their server address and the username and password as required. Nothing else needs to be done on the router.

Inbound email would be a different matter - you need to verify if they block inbound port 25 or not. If they do then you will need to find out if they will unblock, or you will need to use another service for inbound email.

Thanks for the feedback.  I know they do block port 25, but don't know if its inbound/outbound or both.
