Huh!

You need to change the line
      <value>mail.myISP.net</value>
to a smtp server that allows you to connect. If you don't know how to obtain
this information, your Outlook->Account->Server settings may give you an
answer.
you don't need to insert user and password into the config file because you
donÄt need them when sending email. They're just necessary for receiving.
You may need to set the from header to your email address, because some smtp
servers check not only the IP from which you send but also the sender
address to avoid spamming.

Cheers, Mika
