It very much depends on the specific requirements of your SMTP server. Many years ago, anyone could use an SMTP server to send any text to anyone. Nowadays, there are almost no such "open" SMTP servers left, because of the possibility of sending spam. Almost all SMTP servers require some sort of authentication, but each one does it differently. Some require the username and password to be encrypted, by using a secure (SSL) connection. Others require you first to login via POP3 on the same server and ask for your incoming email to be downloaded, and once you've done that you are free to use SMTP. Others use a non-standard port number. Many use a combination of the above. So, as I said, what you need to do depends on your specific server.

Yes, when I configured gmail SMTP access in my mail client I found it a bit tricky. It uses port 465 or 587 and uses Authentication (username is email address) and SSL.
