Success with Sending email without a SMTP Server!!!!

Richard,

Authentication is only required for relaying (unless the server hasn't 
been set up properly) -- i.e. my SMTP server won't relay mail to 
someone else for *you*, but it will relay it for *me* because I'm 
authenticated.

On the other hand, my server will accept mail *for me* from anyone.  If 
it didn't, I wouldn't get much mail :-)
