By default SMF uses the PHP mailer function built into PHP. You should ask your host if that setting is enabled. You can check what you're settings are in the Admin > Maintenance > Mail > Settings to let us know what you're settings are.

You need to input your mail information into it so that it can send mail as in

SMTP server – this would be the server given to you by your mail setup
SMTP username – The user name of you mail account
SMTP password – The password of the above mail account

Remember you can use any active SMTP mail account with this

To get mail functionality on 110MB, you will need to pay to "upgrade" your account. Standard sendmail functionality is $9. If you want to use POP/SMTP, then you'll need the "fsockopen enabled" option, which is $7. See http://www.110mb.com/upgrade-free-plan.php for more info.

Alternatively you can move to a decent host. See: Hosts, Hosting and Commercial Services.
