I use gmail for my SMTP needs. I have accounts on a couple of unix
machines, yahoo, gmail, aim, my business hosted via godaddy and I choose
gmail as the default SMTP server for all of them. Works like a charm.

Give them a try. Gmail is free and it can be a good account to pass to
sites that you feel may be spam generators. Gmail has web/pop/imap
access and has fairly decent spam filters.
