How do I set up an outbound SMTP server on MS Server 2003?

My team at work has been given the task of getting our MS Server 2003 box to send out emails. I have no idea how to do this.
All of my googling gives me instructions on how to set up SMTP with exchange, or some variance thereof. I don't need to receive emails, just send them. We're intending to use python and smtplib to create and send the email using variables from a database that we are creating. We toyed with the idea of using godaddy's SMTP relay, but it only gives you 250 relays per day for obvious reasons.
The question is how does a non-spammer send out between 250-700 emails per day using what I have at my disposal?
Note: Every email sent is opt-in and offers the recipient a coupon targeted towards an item that they have expressed interest in.
