Enter your full email address in the User Name field
In the Security Settings section, select None from the Connection Security drop down, and Password, transmitted insecurely from the Authentication method drop down.  

Select Outgoing Server (SMTP) from the list on the left
Select your email address/account from the list and click the Edit… button 
Enter Mail.YOURDOMAIN in the Server Name field 
Enter 25 in the Port field
In the Security and Authentication section, select None from the Connection Security drop down, and Password, transmitted insecurely from the Authentication method drop down.
