the sMTP connection from NS does work with any named mail server
providing that the account that NS is running under is permitted to
send mail via that mail server. If you have followed guidelines and
created a dedicated service account for the NS service then this should
not be a problem as if this account does not currently have mail rights
then you can ask the SMTP server admin to grant send mail rights and to
confirm the 'from' mailbox that you should use.

The only problems arise with servers outside the NS domain that require
login credentials other than the account you are running under. In this
instance you then need to use the IIS SMTP to relay the mail to the
designated server and control the credentials via the relay
configuration.

with regard to logging, if you set the various log parameters in the
ADF you get reasonable logging with can be accessed via one of the
public views in NS (distributordistribution i think or something like
that) . A status code is assigned to each batch attempt which will tell
you if if was passed successfully to the mail server or not. Retry
information is recorded against the work item and requires a bit more
digging to get at, but it is there.
