He wants to use the BT SMTP.
He may have wanted to use BT SMTP from home, but at the time of writing, he had never found a non-port 25 BT SMTP and the only port 25 BT SMTP that he was aware of would be blocked at home by many ISPs, and so was unusable at home.
Therefore my suggestion is the only workable solution on all home ISPs whether or not a non-port 25 BT SMTP is ascertained.
Of course now, if a non-port 25 authenticated BT SMTP can be verified, as BatBoy suggests but has yet to confirm as official from BT and not just some Goggle rumour, then you would only need 1 a/c in mail client utilising this non-port 25 BT SMTP both home and away.
I note that in your post, despite criticising my eminently suitable method, you do not actually specify the settings other than being a generalisation of my specifics.
