[Help] FreePBX email setup/webmin/SendMail email setup?

I have a FreePBX VPS with Atlantic.net and I cant seem to figure out how to setup email to work with it. There is NO domain tied to it just an IP, but I cant find anywhere to use an external SMTP server to setup sendmail to actually work! Only place I find is to set the server, but theres no where to enter login details.

I just need freepbx to be able to send emails thats it.

Thanks!

    Does this help? https://wiki.freepbx.org/display/FPG/System+Admin+-+Email+Setup#SystemAdmin-EmailSetup-UseExternalSMTPServer it shows you can do it in the admin control panel.

    Also your forum sig, it needs to be 2 lines not three please :)

    Ah apologies I didn't see that, I haven't used FreePBX in a long time. Are there any mail servers installed on the server?

    I have SendMail installed, but I see no option to connect to a remote SMTP server to send the mail. There is no domain tied to it just an IP on the VPS so I'm wanting to connect it to a external mail server to send the emails. I can add a doamin if needed

    FreePBX does have some IMAP settings which I have put in my email info. But checking SendMail I get errors like Reason for failure 550 5.1.1 xxx@xxx.com... User unknown

    Even though the email freepbx should be sending through has nothing to do with this vps
