[Xymon] New Xymon Server email

I've just spent half my day attempting to get Postfix to function, 
without success.   My ISP blocks port 25, so I've attempted to setup the 
TLS relay to my SMTP host, but that doesn't work either.  Gone are the 
days of just editing a few configs and then everything works.  I've read 
more how-to's than I want to count, and none actually work.  If Xymon 
has 'alerts' built-in shouldn't it roll in an actual email relay tool 
that users can enter their basic SMTP server credentials and it just 
works?  Can someone offer some sane assistance please?  I'm beating my 
head against the wall at this point.
