If you have the domain name for your account, then this is simple.
the smtp server will be mail.<domainname>
For me it's slnt1.on.wave.com.com
I'm fairly positive they give you that information when you sign up, or you
can simply get the domain name from an nslookup or a host on your ip address
and strip off your host name.
