SMTP is that "other" address that your email client uses. The POP3 stuff is for receiving mail, and the SMTP is for sending mail.
I don't know if you can email yourself from within your ISP, but otherwise, get a gmail account and use that (I've got ton's of invites left) - because you'll have to email from one of your accounts to another one of your accounts..
The SMTP server that it's asking for is the one that it will send the email out on. Usually it's in the format "smtp.xxxxxx.com" or "mail.xxxxxx.com" - but that depends on whoever hosts your mail server. Either check in your email client for the settings, or contact your ISP. Don't forget to check to see if it's secure (SSL, etc) or not.
FWIW - the default email ports are:
POP3 - 110 - unsecured, 995 - secured
SMTP - 35 - unsecured, 465 - secured
