You need to change the

code:
SMTP =
line to your smtp server of your isp.

Unless of course your running a smtp server on windows. (which you aren't)

Theres no point at all in running one.
So just use your isp's.

Even if you did set up your own, you would still have to tell it to pass stuff onto your ISP's anyway.

to use your isp's mail server
just replace the word localhost with the address of your isp's smtp mailserver...

Where else?
