Windows 2008 is delivered With IIS7 which doesn't have an SMTP sever itself.
luckily there is still IIS6 available which can be installed as SMTP server.

So if you want to use mail in sienn without any external smtp server you have to do the following.
Install SMTP(this automatically installs IIS6) and in services make sure "Simple Mail Transfer Protocol(SMTP)" starts automatically.

In IIS6 manager
expand your local computer
right mousclick on "[SMTP Virtual Server #1]" or whatever It is called
Properties
Tab: Access
Click the button Relay
and make sure IP: 127.0.0.1 is granted
Now you have to set your smtp server to "localhost" whithout any username and password

that's all

To let older versions(before 13-02-2008) of sienn work without updating them, you can read here.

Solutions 3 is a good one which I tested and It works.

Just for your own security. Make sure all inbound SMTP firewall rules are disabled. Else you can create a spanbot of your server.
for a little more security

In IIS6 manager
expand your local computer
right mousclick on "[SMTP Virtual Server #1]" or whatever It is called
Properties
Tab: Access
Click the button "Relay"
and uncheck : "Allow all computers which successfully authenticate to relay, regardless of the list above"
click ok,
Click the button "Connections"
and make sure only IP: 127.0.0.1 is granted
