Get a PC and Microsoft NT server.  Then try Post.Office.
That's what we use here and it works.

Another option, get a PC and install Linux on it.  Linux
comes with a SMTP server (if not a few).  And is close
to being free (you can get a CD with Linux for $50 or so).

The exact same reason you can't use your AS/400 for an
SMTP server is the same reason we don't.  I do not like
that funky name?machine@domain.com thing.  I mean,
heck, all the other POP3 and SMTP servers in the world
can use name@domain.com, why can't IBM figure it out?
