    Q1 answer: You will need to enable anonymous access via the mail server's SMTP. The best way would be to specifcially allow the IP address of the SharePoint server to relay through it anonymously.

    Q2 answer: If you stick with WSS 3, as long as you have the appropriate server license and server CALs, you don't need any SharePoint licenses.
