You might take a look at:

It does quite a bit more than just SMTP, but that is included.

However, you should note that if you are running the server at home,
chances are that most mail servers will reject mail from your system.
It's best to use the server your ISP provides.  You can have your local
SMTP server forward through your ISP's server, but this is, in most
cases, unneeded complexity.
