Check your mail routing connection document to see whether the mail connection is the default "Push only." Change it to "Pull Only" or "Pull Push." You will then be able to set the "Pull routing request protocol" to SMTP, which technically sends the outgoing mail then issues an ETRN command to have the destination server send pending mail down.
The routing task in this configuration should be "Mail Routing."
