^^ This. It's *really* strange that your host doesn't know what to do...

Anyway, your other possibility is to set up a different server for managing your mail exchange and configure SMF to use SMTP through it. I did it in a forum I'm helping out:
- buy the service at a given provider (we used hushmail, Gmail is also able to handle your domain, many others exist)
- reconfigure your DNS so that the MX records point at the new mail provider
- configure SMF to use SMTP with this provider.

It's an extra cost, of course.
